The fourth edition of this volume presents design principles and practical guidance for key hydraulic structures. Fully revised and updated, this new edition contains enhanced texts and sections on: Environmental issues and the World Commission on Dams + partially saturated soils, small amenity dams, tailing dams, upstream dam face protection and the rehabilitation of embankment dams + RCC dams and the upgrading of masonry and concrete dams + flow over stepped spillways and scour in plunge pools + cavitation, aeration and vibration of gates + risk analysis and contingency planning in dam safety + small hydroelectric power development and tidal and wave power + wave statistics, pipeline stability, wave–structure interaction and coastal modelling + computational models in hydraulic engineering.

The book's key topics are explored in two parts - dam engineering and other hydraulic structures – and the text concludes with a chapter on models in hydraulic engineering. Worked numerical examples supplement the main text and extensive lists of references conclude each chapter. Hydraulic Structures provides advanced students with a solid foundation in the subject and is a useful reference source for researchers, designers and other professionals.
