Canal and River Levées covers the basic rules of canal embankments and levées calculation and layout. Canal embankments and levées are among the world's oldest hydroengineering
structures. This publication is split into seven chapters that target fixing the issues of shielding keep watch over levees, which also known as anti-flood or anti-inundation dykes.

The establishing bankruptcy surveys the final difficulties of dam layout and development. the following chapters care for the elemental features, choice, experimental tools, and calculations of seepage, in addition to the soundness calculations and embankment cost. those subject matters are by means of discussions of the neighborhood stipulations and calls for in relation to the development of embankments and their a number of concrete buildings. different chapters discover the necessities of energy- and irrigation-canal sealing and the subsoil safety of levees. The final bankruptcy seems into the measurements, normal specifications, and statement of dams and levees.

This publication is meant basically for civil engineering designers.
