Engineering for Dams - Volumes 1,2 and 3

£34.99

Product description

A classic work on the engineering of dams that was written during a period of marked increase in projects involving dams and a subsequent rise in experimental research and studies. The subsequent re-examination of the methods of construction and of the theories of design led to a substantial improvement in the art and science of dam building. This book was intended to be a compendium of the best practices with sufficient detail to serve the working engineer as well as the student.

Published in three volumes, "General Design", "Concrete Dams" and "Earth, Rock-Fill, Steel and Timber Dams".

All copies are in very good condition. Their exteriors are slightly faded and edges scuffed and bumped from shelf ware.

Inside, all pages are clean and free of any writing, highlighting and markings. Their bindings have become slightly loose. There is some browning to the pages and the original owner's signature is inside the cover.

Published by John Wiley and Sons (New York) and Chapman and Hall (London) in 1947.

A great collection of a classic work on dam engineering that will appeal to engineers and collectors equally
