International Workshop on Dam Sedimentation Control

2019-09-04T02:22:20+04:3028th July, 2018|

Although sediment transport is very vital for agriculture, it has caused serious problems for the dam reservoirs. A huge amount of sediment enters dam reservoirs each year and results in the dam storage capacity decrease. It costs too much each year for sedimentation control and sediment removal. Due to the mentioned problems, the Regional […]
