About the book

We, as scientists, engineers, consultants, and owners have to provide a sustainable and safe water supply for human consumption in cities, especially metropolitans. Dams and their appurtenant structures are mainly constructed to provide this human demand. As civilizations have matured, dams, which are man-made infrastructures, have been further developed for agriculture, flood control, power, water-based transportation, and recreation. Water storage and effective use of water are important aspects, especially for the countries with unequal rainfall and limited water resources. Therefore, dams pose a critical role in providing standard living conditions. In this book, we desire original research articles focused on the state-of-the-art techniques and methods employed in the various aspects of the design, construction, and analysis of dams. We welcome both theoretical and application studies of high technical standards across various disciplines. We seek high-quality submissions of original research articles as well as review articles on all aspects related to dam engineering that has the potential for practical application. The articles focused on their social and environmental impacts are very valuable studies for us.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Mrs. Mia Vulovic

As an Author Service Manager, my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
