Small Dams in Italy
Aim of the Working Group activated by the Italian Committee of Large Dams is to review and discuss the current situation of the “Small Dams” in Italy. Regulatory supervision of “Small Dams” (height <15 m and reservoir volume <1.000.000 m3) is carried out by Regional Authorities on the base of local regulations and guidelines, with […]

Effect of chlorination on the corrosion behavior of CuNi 70/30 condenser tubing
In recent years, the detection of many MIC failure events affecting copper alloys in heat exchange plant drove the setting-up of experimental monitoring systems regarding these phenomena. The formation of protective oxide layers growing on CuNi 70/30, commonly employed in seawater, and the positive role of chlorination treatments were particularly addressed. For this purpose measurements […]

Hydraulic tunnels
In more than 270 dams worldwide, geomembranes are the main waterproofing component. The geomembrane is generally associated with other geosynthetics performing various functions, thereby forming a geosynthetic barrier. In this paper, uses of geosynthetic barriers in the various types of dams are re- viewed. The types of dams reviewed include: embankment dams (earthfill and rockfill […]
