Hydrological analysis and design of Headworks of Jeera Irrigation Project

Gayari, Abhinav (2013) Hydrological analysis and design of Headworks of Jeera Irrigation Project. BTech thesis.



Designing a dam unnecessarily big may result in wastage of investment and resource. So a proper study on hydrological features is relevant. Analysis of stability of slopes is of utmost importance as its failure may lead to catastrophic conseqences resulting in loss of lives and great economic losses. Failure of a mass located below the slope is called a slide. It involves both the downward and outward movement of entire mass of soil that participates in failure.To check the stability of the dam a series of hand calculation was done. It included stability of upstream slope, downstream slope, overall stability against shear and stability of foundation.A software named “PLAXIS “ was also used to determine the stability of the dam. In this project a comparative study of the two methods was done with special stress on the application of GA in the analysis of slope stability.
