The second edition of Design of Small Dams has been very popular throughout the world; it has been published in a number of different languages and used extensively in the United States. Since the second edition was published in 1974, there have been significant revisions in the approaches and procedures related to the design of dams. Because of these revisions and the continued demand for this manual, it was decided that this new third edition be prepared and published. The purpose of this third edition has been changed in scope and intent from that of the second edition. The title Design of Small Dams has been retained even though some of the information in the third edition relates to large dams. Many of the theoretical concepts presented can be applied to large or small structures; however, it is recommended that the procedures and methods presented be used only as guidelines. When preparing the design of large or complicated structures, especially those located where they create a high hazard, the owner should rely on experienced dam engineers, experienced consultants, or refer to more detailed references.
