Site Selection for Dams

The purpose of a dam is to retain and store large quantities of water in a safe way. Many considerations are analyzed. Dams can be built anywhere if you can spend enough money. However preferred site have following characteristics which lead to lower project costs. Thus alternate dam sites/axis location are evaluated for most cost effective choice.

Purposes of Dams - Importance, Functions and Applications

Dams and reservoirs are built to raise water level for storage and safe retention of large quantity of water. Water is subsequently released to achieve various purposes. Dams may be constructed to meet one or more purposes as: Irrigation, Hydropower development (Tarbela Dam, Mangla Dam), Domestic, municipal, industrial water

Gotthard Base Tunnel (Rail Tunnel) Design Engineering, Construction & Cost

It is one of the most extreme engineering projects in World History, to build a 35 miles long tunnel under the Alps Mountains. It is the longest tunnel in the world. This could not be possible without world’s strongest drilling machines, each more than 3 stories high and longer than 4 football fields, drilling 24hrs a day for 6 years. The project costed $7 Billion.

The bridge carries the I-95, the most heavily traveled road on the East cost of the United States. The Woodrow Wilson Bridge is 6,736 feet (2,053 m) long and 70 feet (21 m) high.

Geological Considerations Before Installing Ground Source Heat Pump Systems

As the GSHP systems have relatively high installation costs, it is important that geological data and knowledge is available so that costs can be minimized. Furthermore, detailed geological information like surface and sub-surface temperature, thermal properties of the soil, water table, flow direction and type of soil etc. is also required for efficient design of the system.

Soil Suitability for Geothermal Heat Pumps (Closed-Loop Horizontal Residential)

Ground source heat pump systems provide a viable alternative to conventional heating and cooling systems in the move towards sustainable building solutions. The most important factor for successful operation of a ground loop heat system is the rate of heat transfer between the pipe and surrounding soil.
