    Planet of Earth Energy Crisis.

    Dear Sir

    Subject mater all our the World facing Energy problem So I am try to explain a idea for Old & New Dams / Reservoirs Hydel Civil Design can move in architectural Transition to increase our energy potential Because we are losing heavy quantum of already storage water in our Big Dams to generate past technology now need to convert into New theory of Technology.

    Thanks.

    with best regards.

  14. Gravity dam design is still a reference manual for all dam engineers. I use it , as a dam designer, as a basis for all stability calculations.

    Dear Sir,

    The Subject matter is all over the World facing Energy problem, So I am trying to Explain an idea for Old & New Dams / Reservoirs Hydro electric projects Civil Design Geometry Can be modifying in Architectural Transition to increase our energy potential. Because we are Losing heavy quantum of already storage water in our Big Dams and its relevant projects to generate Hydro Electric old technology, Now it must be need to convert into new theory of Scientific Technology as per utilizing in the way of experiment with foreign expertise at any Hydro electric base Model of concern Department or forum to finalize the following unique and entire world Globalize developing idea for its further implementations in the current ongoing and next coming future Hydel projects as soon as possible.

    Thanks.

    with best regards.

    Dear colleague possibly with help with your materials
    or recommend for any web site with materials about
    construction and restructuring of the foundations of dams, as
    I’m preparing the certificate, master’s thesis, I am from
    Kosovo and materials in this area are limited measure.
    All the best.

  17. MISHEAL D KESSEBEH says:

    Dear sir, am a final year civil engineering student. Am doing project on structural design of a dam for a village community. pls help me to go about this project and also with software.

    thanks
