Abstract

Abstract For the first time the technical board “Dams and Weirs” of the German Association for Water Waste Water and Waste (DWA) published a guideline how to cope with loads beyond the design assumption. This implies to consider a possible residual risk, which was not so openly discussed in Germany in the past. This paper presents the main issues of the document DWA T1/2017, which gives a guideline how to cope with the risk of large dams and reservoirs.

Dams Beyond Design Assumptions

Abstract For the first time the technical board “Dams and Weirs” of the German Association for Water Waste Water and Waste (DWA) published a guideline how to cope with loads beyond the design assumption. This implies to consider a possible residual risk, which was not so openly discussed in Germany in the past. This paper presents the main issues of the document DWA T1/2017, which gives a guideline how to cope with the risk of large dams and reservoirs.
