Hydraulic and structural evaluation of rockfill dam behavior when exposed to throughflow and overtopping scenarios. 2020. Ganesh Hiriyanna Rao Ravindra, PhD.

Ravindra has published several scientific articles during his PhD-research. He has investigated flow and overtopping of rock fill dams and, among other things, found that the dam toe can be crucial in extreme load situations such as overtopping. The data from the doctoral thesis will now be used to develop improve the design of the dam toe of rock fill dams. Read more about his research.
