Prepared by the Task Committee for the updating of MOP 79 of the Pipeline Division of the American Society of Civil Engineers. Steel Penstocks stands as a complete guide to the design, installation, and maintenance of the closed conduits between a free water surface and hydroelectric power stations. This new, thoroughly updated edition provides recommendations and technical guidance for all aspects of steel penstocks, including tunnel liners, wyes, and branch outlets. It also provides practical, comprehensive information regarding the economic, safety, and environmental aspects of designing and implementing steel penstocks at hydropower stations. Chapters offer both background commentary and specific requirements, and a final chapter contains 10 worked examples of design problems. Topics include: design considerations, including economic diameter, shutoff systems, and seismic loads; materials, design criteria, and allowable stresses; exposed and buried penstocks; steel tunnel liners; wye branches and outlets; anchor blocks; appurtenances, bends, and transitions; corrosion prevention and control; welding; manufacture, installation, and inspection; startup; documentation and certification; and maintenance. Hydroelectric engineers, designers, and facility managers use MOP 79 as the go-to reference for steel penstocks.

The book provides a comprehensive account of an important sector of engineering—the hydro-power—that is renewable and potentially sustainable. It covers the entire scope of the subject in a lucid manner starting from the fundamentals of hydrology, to various hydraulic and civil structures to electrical and mechanical equipment as required for hydro-power projects. Many new issues and challenges voiced in the energy sector in general and water power in particular during the last decade have been addressed in the book. Recent innovations and developments in some areas like wave power, and new technologies in hydraulic structures, like the P-K weirs, fuse gates, stepped spillways, CFRD, RCC, etc., find place suitably in the book. The book is meant for undergraduate and postgraduate students of civil and electrical engineering and for the professionals interested in the subject. NEW IN THE SECOND EDITION ♦ Thoroughly rewritten text; takes account of the new and growing technology, including • New types of dams, sedimentation of reservoirs, rehabilitation of dams • Spillway design floods, new types of spillways • Mathematical models for rainfall-runoff analysis, including contribution of snowfall • Structural components of tidal plants, and new types of turbines • Wave power exploitation ♦ Detailed study on Sardar Sarovar and Tehri projects ♦ Fully updated with the latest data, up to 2013 ♦ Two new chapters on 'small-scale hydro, and 'environmental impact of hydro and multi-purpose projects’

Revised and updated, this second edition of Design of Hydraulic Gates maintains the same goal as the original: to be used as a textbook and a manual of design of gates, presenting the main aspects of design, manufacture, installation and operation of hydraulic gates, while introducing new products, technologies and calculation procedures. This edition included new chapters on intake gates and trashrack design, highlighting the aspects of safety, operational and maintenance procedures. To improve the strength against structural failure of intake trashracks, the author proposes a series of rigid calculation assumptions, design parameters and manufacturing procedures, which will certainly result in safer trashracks. Some 340 drawings and photographs, 82 tables, 107 references and 23 worked examples help the reader to understand the basic concepts and calculation methods presented.

This report provides general guidelines in the structural design of blast resistant petrochemical facilities. Informational coverage is provided for OSHA requirements, design objectives, siting considerations, and load determination with references mentioned for more detailed information. More detailed coverage is provided for types of construction, dynamic material strengths, allowable response criteria, analysis methods, and design procedures. Typical details and ancillary considerations, such as doors and windows, are also included. A "how to" discussion on the upgrade of existing buildings is provided for older facilities which may not meet current needs. Three example calculations are included to illustrate design procedures.
