PRIVATE DIARY ► 🤍 Nature is an amazing force that has been maintaining order and harmony on our planet for millions of years. Even the most insignificant element of nature has its meaning and purpose. Take, for example, rivers: they cross all existing continents and help people survive since prehistoric times. Rivers are a source of drinking water and food. Without them, it would be impossible to irrigate the land and carry people and goods from one settlement to another. Nevertheless, in order to live safely near deep rivers, we have to make certain interventions. For example, since ancient times, people were building dams on the waterways to adjust the flow of water. Today, we will tell you how the dams work and show you the terrifying consequences caused by mistakes in their design. 🤍
Have you ever seen a dam in real life? Those huge structures are not only vital for our water needs in dry seasons but are also quite helpful in providing extra energy. By repurposing rivers and lakes, they reimagine vast ecosystems. They supply millions of homes around the globe with electricity, but how do these structures provide an alternative power source to humanity? The short answer is by generating electricity from water. Acquiring dam power is simple in principle. Using the water’s kinetic energy and converting it into electricity is not something new and people have been benefiting from it since the first civilizations. They do this by using gravity to their advantage. However, producing the amount of energy in today’s scale is not an easy task for sure. It is easier said than done. Therefore, it takes quite a number of professionals and engineers to build an electric generating dam. Thanks to the high efficiency of this conversion, hydroelectric dams are still one of the most convenient and preferred ways for alternative energy sources. Composing of four different parts, these magnificent engineering wonders have been providing us with energy while also helping the environment. Dam energy has been used for quite a while, and the reason is clear. If you also find these structures interesting and want to know more about how they function, we highly recommend you watch this video. You will be surprised how much you can learn about how dams are capable of converting the water-energy into electricity.

Dig into the engineering of the Hoover Dam, a concrete arch-gravity dam on the Colorado River that supplies water to the US southwest. In the early 20th century, the US had expanded from coast to coast, but many cities in the southwest still lacked reliable water sources. The Colorado River's erratic flow and frequent floods made it unreliable for agriculture, and the region’s growing cities needed more energy. So the government decided to build a massive hydroelectric dam. Alex Gendler details the creation of the Hoover Dam. Lesson by Alex Gendler, directed by Jovan Rakic, Artrake Studio.

Beavers build dams that are designed to endure bad weather and high waters using logs, branches and stones. Impoundments are crucial for the species as they provide ponds as protection against predators. This advantageous skill is passed on from generation to generation and the beavers of the wet grassland of Wyoming are certainly no exception to the rule.

#miniconstruction #mrconstruction #hydroelectric #hooverdam " The Hoover Dam, formerly known as the Boulder Dam, is a concrete arch gravity dam in the Black Canyon of the Colorado River, on the border between the US states of Arizona and Nevada. It was built between 1931 and 1936 during the Great Depression. The stamping construction was the result of an enormous effort that involved thousands of workers, and took over 100 lives. The dam was officially named Hoover Dam after a 1947 Congressional resolution. However, this dam is believed to have severely affected the ecosystem in the lower Colorado River area, causing the Colorado River Delta to dry out and shrink significantly. The Colorado River is vast with a length of 2,333 km, providing water for irrigation for 1/12 of the US land. The river begins at the headwaters of the upper Rocheuses mountain range toward the southwest, crosses the Colorado River, Utah and flows through a large ravine, flows into the state of New Mexico before emptying into the Gulf of California, forming the border river between Arizona and Nevada. , Arizona and California. The Colorado River is a "fierce" river. In 1905, it suddenly changed course completely, forming Lake Sorton, 77 square kilometers, threatening to sink the California Inpiril River bed. To control and improve watering conditions, and use it for electricity generation, the authorities decided to build a large dam in the section of the river bordering Arizona and Nevada. In 1928, Congress issued money, and construction began in 1931. President at that time Herbert Hoover was very interested in this project, decided to name it Hoover Dam. Construction was completed in 1936, but President Roosevelt called it Boulder Dam. This name was used until 1947, after which the parliament restored the old name. To build this dam, people had to excavate 8.2 million tons of lava, with the same amount of steel used to build the Empire State Building. The base of the dam is 201 m thick, 221 m high, close to the height of a 70-storey building. Leaning close to the north of the dam has become Lake Mead, one of the largest man-made water reservoirs in the world, with an irregular sawtooth shape, 177 km long, the lake shoreline is 1,323 km long. To the north of Lake Mead is a 14,165-hectare red sandstone national park. The sandstone here is gradually turning from red like fire to light purple. Rain and wind erosion, sandstone carved into round parasols, honeycombs and unique strange shapes, like the head and trunk of a great elephant. About 4,000 people were involved in the construction of the Hoover Dam. Hoover is located in the town of Borde, a lovely, pleasant village, with all the features of both city and country.

Landslide dams are a cascading hazard. Landslides themselves can impact people and property, but when their debris blocks streams and rivers, the dams and impounded reservoirs they form can pose a secondary hazard to people and infrastructure downstream, when they fail and release water and debris. Last year the Kaiwhata landslide, located east of Wellington in the Wairarapa, created a dam and reservoir. Soon after its formation, the dam breached and the reservoir emptied, which sent a flood wave downstream inundating the area with water and debris. Last month the landslide reactivated following a heavy rain event, and formed a new landslide dam and impounded reservoir, which is still present (as at December 2020).

The Glen Canyon Dam, much like Hetch Hetchy, is an extremely contentious and controversial project. There’s a growing movement in support of the Glen Canyon Dam Removal altogether. With the specter of climate change looming, those calls may grow louder. But whether or not you agree with that decision, there’s a lot to be learned from the history of the dam’s construction. Glen Canyon before Lake Powell was a veritable sandstone cathedral. As it wound its way through Southern Utah, Glen Canyon’s numerous side canyons, nooks, and crannies were home to countless plants and animals, as well as the priceless artifacts of Ancestral Puebloans. But after the Glen Canyon dam construction, this area was flooded under Lake Powell, becoming part of the Glen Canyon National Recreation Area. These two states, Glen Canyon with the dam and Glen Canyon without it, lie at the heart of the controversy surrounding it. A controversy that asks difficult questions about the role we expect natural places to play in our lives. This video helps you understand these issues and the circumstances which led to them.

Hydroelectric Dams are vast and enormously complex pieces of infrastructure. However, the way they create renewable energy is comparatively simple! Take something high up to give it potential energy. Drop it a certain height to convert that potential energy into movement or kinetic energy. Use that kinetic energy to turn a turbine to generate electricity. And do all of that in the most efficient way possible. Bingo! Tucked away in the Mountain Resort of Revelstoke, a few hundred kilometres East of Vancouver is BC Hydro's enormous 2.8 Gigawatt dam, which first opened in 1984.

Chapter 61 - Earth Dam - Introduction, types and calculation of seepage through it A dam is a barrier that restricts the flow of water and can be used to collect the water. This water may be utilised for many purposes such as irrigation, human consumption, industrial use and hydro power generation. Dams can be created using different materials such as bricks, concrete, timber and earth that means soil. Different sites require different types of material for the construction of dam. Not all the sites are appropriate for the construction of all the types of dams but an earth dam can be designed to be constructed at almost any site. In earth dams the construction material is earth that is rocks and soil. The water that an earth dam holds on its one side flows from upstream through the voids present in the soil of the body of the dam to downstream by the action of hydraulic head difference. This phenomenon of flow of water, movement of water through the soil is called seepage. As the water flows through the soil it exerts a drag on the soil particles in the direction of its motion. If this exerted force is strong it may displace the soil particles in its way and particles may get carried away by the flowing water. This creates pipe like openings in the body of the dam through which water can flow rapidly. This phenomenon is called piping. It is one of the major causes of failure in earth dams. It is difficult to construct an earth dam with zero seepage. Some of the water will always seep through the dam and the foundation. So for the safety of the structure against piping the seepage through it must be within acceptable limits. Here in this video we try to estimate the amount of seepage losses through the body of a homogeneous earth dam having a horizontal filter at the downstream end. _ Read Earth Dam - Introduction, types and calculation of seepage through it : 🤍 Soil Mechanics Playlist : 🤍 Reference Books : 🤍 _ Elementary Engineering Diaries: 🤍 _ Support : PayPal : paypal.me/elementaryengg Patreon : 🤍 _ Connect : Twitter : 🤍 E-mail : contact🤍elementaryengineeringlibrary.com Website : 🤍

If you've ever wondered what it would take to dig a small pond, a deer watering hole or wildlife pond, then this is the video for you. Join me for an afternoon at our Illinois investment farm, which is mostly enrolled in the CRP program, as I take you through the entire process of building a pond. While I did not use my Branson Tractor, I did use our Bobcat e42 mini excavator, which is an incredible all around land management tool! Starting from stripping the 'black dirt' sod off of the top and storing it behind the dam for the soon to be pond dam, to digging the pond dam core trench, aka keyway trench, and building up the entire pond dam. Then we'll dig out the depth of the pond so that once it fills up it will remain a year round water source not only for deer, but for all kinds of wildlife. This will improve the homestead real estate value, as well as improve the hunting land aspects and increase the value of our land investment. Then we'll get a look at how it turned out a few weeks after, and then of course we'll get to see it when it was fully filled up a few months later. This is our Illinois 'Project 211' hunting land (aka investment land) and this is just one of several ponds that we installed to increase the value of this land as well as the wildlife habitat improvement.

🤍 Hoover Dam is a concrete arch-gravity dam in the Black Canyon of the Colorado River, on the border between the U.S. states of Nevada and Arizona. It was constructed between 1931 and 1936 during the Great Depression and was dedicated on September 30, 1935, by President Franklin D. Roosevelt. Its construction was the result of a massive effort involving thousands of workers, and cost over one hundred lives. It was referred to as Hoover Dam after President Herbert Hoover in bills passed by Congress during its construction, but was named Boulder Dam by the Roosevelt administration. The Hoover Dam name was restored by Congress in 1947. Since about 1900, the Black Canyon and nearby Boulder Canyon had been investigated for their potential to support a dam that would control floods, provide irrigation water and produce hydroelectric power. In 1928, Congress authorized the project. The winning bid to build the dam was submitted by a consortium called Six Companies, Inc., which began construction of the dam in early 1931. Such a large concrete structure had never been built before, and some of the techniques were unproven. The torrid summer weather and lack of facilities near the site also presented difficulties. Nevertheless, Six Companies turned the dam over to the federal government on March 1, 1936, more than two years ahead of schedule. Hoover Dam impounds Lake Mead, the largest reservoir in the United States by volume when full. The dam is located near Boulder City, Nevada, a municipality originally constructed for workers on the construction project, about 30 mi (48 km) southeast of Las Vegas, Nevada. The dam's generators provide power for public and private utilities in Nevada, Arizona, and California. Hoover Dam is a major tourist attraction; nearly a million people tour the dam each year. The heavily traveled U.S. Route 93 (US 93) ran along the dam's crest until October 2010, when the Hoover Dam Bypass opened. Like & Subscribe for more vintage educational content posted weekly.

Do you know we make in Velké Poříčí (Czech republic) huge inflatable rubber components to fit in dams? Inflatable dams are modern, movable, and fully automatic barrier structures used to raise the water level of water streams. In cooperation with our partners, the design offices of Hydroconstruct and Aquatis, we offer complete deliveries of the technology for inflatable dams of the highest technical level, based on our own know-how acquired since 1963, when the first inflatable dam was implemented. Since then, we have together installed hundreds of inflatable dams throughout the world. In 2011, we established a unique production of membranes for inflatable dams. The production process is a step-by-step procedure that produces the membranes as homogeneous units without connecting their individual belts. We offer various membrane surfaces and membrane thicknesses of 8 to 25 mm. With our own design of the inflatable dam anchoring system, control system, and the highest quality of produced membranes, which comply with the requirements of the appropriate standard (BAW, ISO, DIN, ČSN), this product is one of the best products in this area in the world. The inflatable dam is a permanent structure that includes a rubber-textile membrane (body of the inflatable dam), which is firmly attached to the concrete bed using a steel anchoring system and anchoring screws. The inflatable dam is connected via a pipeline system with a control shaft, which secures, together with an electronic device, the required, fully automatic operation of the dam structure. Its simplicity and environmental harmlessness mean that it is ideal for small hydropower stations, irrigation systems, groundwater treatment, recreation purposes and reconstructions of old fixed as well as movable weirs. At the same time, it is also a suitable measure for conceptual and flood prevention in a given region. It has the ability to create a self-regulating water reservoir on watercourses and to help in directing flood waves. A key part of inflatable dams is formed by Rubena membranes, manufactured in the Czech Republic using the technology of gradual pressing of non-vulcanized semi-finished products into the final shape of a homogeneous membrane. This production technology eliminates connections of vulcanized belts and significantly improves the safety of the entire work with a great improvement in physical and mechanical characteristics of the entire membrane of the barrier structure. The actual design of the dam anchoring system focused on the highest possible usage characteristics of the work, and is also manufactured exclusively in the Czech Republic.
