Review and update of the SANCOLD Guidelines for the design of freeboard of dams
Expanded Title:This research project on freeboard for dams was carried out over a period of three years starting from 2007, and it produced two reports: Volume I Literature Review and case studies (K5/1759/1) - in which the state-of-the-art knowledge on the quantification of the secondary components to be taken into account in the determination of dam freeboard was investigated. Research carried out in the coastal engineering field of aspects which are relevant and applicable to dams was incorporated. Volume II Guidelines for the determination of freeboard for dams (K5/1759/2) which has also been reviewed by SANCOLD and is now the new South African guidelines document (2011), replacing the 1990 freeboard guidelines of SANCOLD.
