INTRODUCTION

To derive the maximum benefit from any Water Resources Project, regulated releases of Water from the reservoir and optimum utilization of such water are of utmost importance. Hydraulic Gates and handling equipments like hoists form the vital components for controlling the discharges through the dam, canals, tunnels, penstocks and outlets. The most important aspects related to the selection of suitable type of gates and their hoisting mechanism based upon the purpose and location include their design and drawings, manufacture & fabrication, testing in factory / field workshop, Transportation to the site of Installation, Erection at the site in a defined sequence and field testing (no-load and full load, or dry and wet testing). Besides, the operation of the gates as per the system requirements and scheduled maintenance as per supplier’s recommendations also form critical steps. For systematic O&M, it is also essential to have a Comprehensive Manual. The O&M staff should not only be conversant with the contents of the Manual, but should also be trained suitably for the job so as to ensure safe operation and effective maintenance of the gates and hoists, in accordance with the requirements and situation.

INTRODUCTION

Dams have been constructed for millennia, influencing the lives of humans and the ecosystems they inhabit. Gravity dams are solid concrete structures that maintain their stability against design loads from the geometric shape, mass and strength of the concrete. In the design of gravity dams, it is essential to determine the loads required for its stability. The structural response of material to different loads determines as to how it can economically be utilized in the design process. The large amount of water stored in a dam makes its failure to be catastrophic. Design and execution are very crucial for this kind of structures. Exceptional loadings must be taken in account during design phase, because of its highly destructive potential and social importance. Earthquake is one such natural disaster that has claimed many lives and destroyed lots of property, thus necessitating seismic analysis of concrete gravity dams. Many concrete gravity dams have been in service for over 60 years. Over this period many advancements in the methodologies and safety procedures have come in to vogue. Older existing dams often fail to meet these revised evaluation processes and norms. Safety criteria and structural rehabilitation to meet such criteria for these old structures may be costly and difficult. Traditional design procedure (also known as the pseudo-static or seismic coefficient method) was applied worldwide in dam design. Though, this procedure was an excellent for its time, as it provided a basis for computing earthquake forces, in the design of dams”. However, the well studied example of Koyna Dam subjected to the 1967 earthquake, demonstrated that the assumptions made in the traditional design procedure may underestimate earthquake forces, and lead to structural failure. The seismic safety of dams has been a serious concern since then which has been regarded as a watershed event in the development of seismic analysis and design of concrete gravity dams all over the world. Dams are particularly different from other types of structures, since stress analysis of these structures has to take into account dynamic response of the complete system interaction involving Dam Reservoir and Foundation.

INTRODUCTION

By 2050, human population is projected to increase to 9 billion people and it is estimated that 70% of additional food have to be produced in order to teed the humanity over the next 40 years. Water demands increase not only for food production but also for other sectors like industry, domestic, power etc to meet the needs of the increased population. The role of agriculture is more important in resolving the worlds water problems since it is the biggest consumer of water. 70 percent of the available freshwater is being utilized by agriculture sector worldwide and it is more in case of developing countries including India. As far as India is concerned, an irrigation potential of 110 .15 mha has been created out of the ultimate irrigation potential of 139.5 mha and the irrigation efficiencies are very low. Agriculture will have to improve the performance of both irrigated and rain fed production. With a growing population, agriculture will face more comptetion from Industrial and domestic water users. In this context, there is an urgent need to resolve the water problems through smarter agriculture practices and better water management including modernization of irrigation systems which enable the rural people to have a better livelihood opportunities. The technical solutions to produce “more crop for drop” do exist which require political will and investments to improve the rain fed as well as irrigated food production.

INTRODUCTION

Enormous amounts have been spent on multi-purpose river valley projects throughout the length and breadth of the country since independence. The dams built in the country, by and large, have been performing well; but there were also a few failures. Because of this, surveillance, maintenance and repair of dams and other major hydraulic structures throughout the country have been a matter of increasing concern. The safety of these vulnerable structures is a prime concern not only from the point of benefits that are accruing from them, but also from the point of enormous destruction to life and property such failures lead to. These structures, many of them constructed fifty to sixty years ago, have borne the brunt of many maximum peak forces but some have started showing signs of distress. Evidently all these structures are to be evaluated and upgraded in the light of aging and present day technical knowledge, so that they continue to serve their purposes. Conducting tests for understanding the problems / distress in these structures is a technique by itself and the country cannot afford to remain neglecting in this regard. According to the National Water Policy, “There should be proper Organisational arrangements at the national and state levels for ensuring the safety of storage dams and other water related structures consisting of specialists in investigation, design, construction, hydrology, geology, etc. A dam safety legislation is required to ensure proper inspection, maintenance and surveillance of existing dams and also for safety of new dams. The Guidelines on the subject should be periodically updated and reformulated. There should be a system of continuous surveillance and regular visits by experts”.
