Críticas:

Eleven years after the publication of the first edition of the excellent book Geotechnical Engineering of Dams, the geotechnical and dam engineering community can enjoy reading and analyzing the second edition, completely revised, updated, enlarged and enriched. [...] All chapters are almost equally important and interesting for any dam and geotechnical engineer, but I especially like chapters 8 and 9, dealing with internal erosion, piping and filters at embankment dams and in foundation. Apparently, a great experience and original research knowledge of part of the authors of the book is embedded in these thoroughly executed chapters. I cannot also avoid mentioning chapter 12 – Design of embankment dams to withstand earthquakes – in which an up-to-date review and analysis of this sensitive aspect of embankment dam design is given, still under intensive development.
Dam builders have always been aware of the fact that dams are firmly bonded to the foundation. But, with this extraordinary book, the bond seems even stronger! I am sure this book will be an unavoidable professional reference and guide in the libraries of all dam and geotechnical engineers. Also, I strongly recommend the book to advanced university students as a textbook, as well as a source of ideas for further research works.

Ljubomir Tanchev, Professor on dams and hydraulic structures, University of Skopje, Macedonia

This book fills a lacuna in the available comprehensive literature on Geotechnical Engineering of Dams. [...] It covers dimensions not seen in normally available and commonly prescribed textbooks. An intuitive sense of amalgamating both theory and practice is the distinguished and remarkable feature of the book. [...]
A very important and useful aspect of the book is that it covers common errors in the five major aspects of safe dams and provides insight in these aspects by dealing with practical problems and case studies.
The book very well covers all important geotechnical aspects of dam engineering for civil engineering students at undergraduate as well as at post graduate level and for practitioners. [...] Academicians & practicing engineers will be able to sharpen their knowledge with the help of input provided by the book. The book is useful to civil engineers [...] working in the area of geotechnical dam engineering and ground improvement.

Prof. Gautam N. Gandhi, President, Indian Geotechnical Society, New Delhi, Formerly Principal, IDS, Nirma University, India

The book is an excellent contribution in the area of dam engineering. Dam Engineering has become an important area in providing efficient infrastructure for water supply, power generation as well as resources generation and conservation. The revision of the previous edition is timely and up to date. [...] In summary, the treatise is comprehensive, up-to-date and needs to be studied by scientists and engineers, organizations, professional bodies, policy makers and builders connected with dam engineering.

Prof. G.L. Sivakumar Babu, Chairman, International Technical Committee on Forensic Geotechnical Engineering ISSMGE / Governor, Region 10, American Society of Civil Engineers, USA / Editor-in Chief, Indian Geotechnical Journal, Department of Civil Engineering, Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore, India

Reseña del editor:

Geotechnical Engineering of Dams, 2nd edition provides a comprehensive text on the geotechnical and geological aspects of the investigations for and the design and construction of new dams and the review and assessment of existing dams. The main emphasis of this work is on embankment dams, but much of the text, particularly those parts related to geology, can be used for concrete gravity and arch dams.

All phases of investigation, design and construction are covered. Detailed descriptions are given from the initial site assessment and site investigation program through to the preliminary and detailed design phases and, ultimately, the construction phase. The assessment of existing dams, including the analysis of risks posed by those dams, is also discussed. This wholly revised and significantly expanded 2nd edition includes a lengthy new appendix on the assessment of the likelihood of failure of dams by internal erosion and piping.

This valuable source on dam engineering incorporates the 200+ years of collective experience of the authors in the subject area. Design methods are presented in combination with their theoretical basis, to enable the reader to develop a proper understanding of the possibilities and limitations of a method. For its practical, well-founded approach, this work can serve as a useful guide for professional dam engineers and engineering geologists and as a textbook for university students.
