Structures that are constructed for the purpose of the utilisation of water or to contain the damages caused by water, occupy a position of special importance in human society.

Although an introduction to this unique class of structure is available through the course on Water Resources Engineering, the present course plans to discuss each of these structures in detail, with ample worked examples.

Special reference would be made, wherever possible, to relevant national and international standards and norms.

The course would cover the design aspects of the hydraulic structures meant for storage, diversion, conveyance and distribution of water apart from structures for river flow modification and control.

Preliminary design aspects of hydropower structures would also be included.

Foundation considerations in the design of the structures would be discussed for each structure.
