dams can be classified as follows. b. Based on the purpose served: a. Coffer dams: These are temporary dams which are constructed during the construction of actual main dam to keep the dam site free from water. By CITSTUDENTS. Supplying water for domestic & industrial uses 3. The stored water is released to the down stream side through canals and can be utilized for various uses. For inland navigation TU D EN Page 12 TS . CI Classification of Dams: Depending upon various criteria.4 DAMS A Dam is an obstruction or barrier or a hydraulic structure which is constructed across a river or stream to store water on the upstream side as an artificial lake or reservoir.Elements of civil engineering and engineering mechanics 10CIV13 1. Supplying water for hydroelectric power generation 4. Aquaculture 5. without making an attempt to store water.IN . 1.IN TS Dams serve the following purposes: 1. For controlling floods in a river 6.

Storage dams: These are dams built across non perennial rivers to store water in a reservoir during excess flow. c.

Based on the hydraulic design: . When the water level exceeds the maximum level. the excess water entering the reservoir is not allowed to overtop the entire length of the dam. the excess water is allowed to overtop the body of the dam.Elements of civil engineering and engineering mechanics 10CIV13 increasing the water level. By constructing these dams across streams or tributaries on the upstream side of the main dam. entry of silt & debris can be controlled & the useful life of the reservoir can be increased. The excess water is released to the down stream side through a separate spill way & such dams are called non over flow dams. CI CITSTUDENTS. the excess water should be discharged to the down stream side safely. water is directly diverted into the canals. the streams or tributaries which join the main river.

3. Based on the resisting action to external forces: When water is stored in a dam or reservoir, the stored water exerts forces on the upstream face of the dam. Some amount of water also seeps through the bottom of the dam. This seeping water exerts (applies) uplift pressure on the dam. The down stream face of the dam is exposed to wind pressure. The waves that are generated at the top of the reservoir also exert forces on the dam. The body of the dam should be able to resist all such forces and different dams resist these forces in different ways. a. Gravity dams: These are dams which are built of rigid materials like concrete & stone masonry. The cross sections of such dams are very large & also have enormous self weight. The destabilizing forces like hydrostatic pressure, wind pressure, uplift pressure, and wave pressure are resisted by the self weight of the dam only.

b. Arch dams: These are dams which are also constructed of rigid material like concrete or stone masonry. These dams are curved in plan. The cross section of such dams is slender when compared to gravity dams. These dams transfer the water pressure, wind pressure etc. to the banks of the river by arch action.

c. Buttress dams: These are dams in which the water pressure from the stored water acts on a thin deck slab, which is supported over a series of buttresses (piers or columns). The loads are transferred from the deck slab to the buttresses and then to the bed of the river.

4. Based on materials used: a. Rigid dams: These are dams which are constructed of rigid materials like concrete, stone masonry, steel sheets. Gravity dams, Arch dams and Buttress dams are examples of rigid dams. b. Non rigid dams: These are dams which are constructed art of non rigid materials like earth fill & rock fill.

In the above example, the body considered is rigid as long as the distance between the points A and B remains the same before and after application of forces, or else it is considered as a deformable body. Force: According to Newton‟s I law, force is defined as an action or agent, which changes or tends to change the state of rest or of uniform motion of a body in a straight line. Units of force: The gravitational (MKS) unit of force is the kilogram force and is denoted as „kgf‟. The absolute (SI) unit of force is the Newton and is denoted as „N‟. Note: 1 kgf = „g‟ N (But g = 9.81m/s2) Therefore 1 kgf = 9.81 N or 10 N.

Where CI The body can start moving or slide over the plane if the force „P‟ overcomes the frictional „F‟ The frictional resistance developed is proportional to the magnitude of the applied force which is responsible for causing motion upto a certain limit.1 Introduction Whenever a body moves or tends to move over another surface or body.Elements of civil engineering and engineering mechanics 10CIV13 UNIT VII: FRICTION 7.IN .

CITSTUDENTS. dry surface & wet surface. The dynamic friction experienced by a body as it roles over surface as shown in figure is called rolling friction. the magnitude of limiting friction bears a constant ratio to normal reaction between the two this ratio is called as co-efficient of friction. It can range between a zero to limiting fraction value.2 CO-EFFICIENT OF FRICTION: It ha been experimentally proved that between TS two contacting surfaces.e. If the magnitude of the applied force is greater than the limiting friction value the body starts moving over the surface.IN F N Page 72 . In our discussion on friction all the surface we consider will be dry sough surfaces.Elements of civil engineering and engineering mechanics 10CIV13 From the above graph we see that as P increases. Note: Depending upon the nature of the surface of contact i. The dynamic friction experienced by a body as it slides over a plane as it is shown in figure is called sliding friction. Beyond this limit (Limiting friction value) the frictional resistance becomes constant for any value of applied force. W W TU D F EN P N 7. The friction experienced by a body when it is at rest or in equilibrium is known as static friction. It is defined by the relationship F N CI Where μ – Represents co-efficient of friction F – Represents frictional resistance N – Represents normal reaction. If the magnitude of the applied force is less than the limiting friction value. However F cannot increase beyond a certain limit. the body remains at rest or in equilibrium. F also increases.

The frictional resistance depends upon the roughness or smoothness of the surface. Let „R‟ be resultant of F & N. μ ) 5) The magnitude of the frictional resistance developed is exactly equal to the applied force till limiting friction value is reached or where the bodies is about to move. Let „θ‟ be the angle made by the resultant with the direction of N. However. F also increases and correspondingly „θ‟ increases. such an angle „θ‟ is called the Angle of friction TS . Let θmax = α Where α represents angle of limiting friction tan θmax = tanα = CITSTUDENTS. F cannot increase beyond the limiting friction value and as such „θ‟ can attain a maximum value only. Let „P‟ be an applied force required to just move the body such that.Elements of civil engineering and engineering mechanics 10CIV13 7.IN TS P Consider a body weighing „W‟ placed on a horizontal plane. The frictional resistance is independent of the area of contact between the two bodies. frictional resistance reaches limiting friction value.
