Abstract : This report provides a general overview of dams and reservoirs, how they are operated to regulate streamflow, and mathematical modeling capabilities for analyzing their operation. The report is based on a review of the literature, with a view toward developing information pertinent to military planning and operations. The treatment of dams and reservoirs includes: (a) a discussion of the worldwide inventory of dams, (b) types and configurations of dams and appurtenant structures, and (c) reservoir regulation procedures. State- of-the-art modeling capabilities are reviewed in the categories of stimulation, optimization, flood wave analysis, streamflow synthesis, water quality, and sediment transport. Development of rating curves is also covered.... Dams, Streamflow, Military hydrology, Regulation.
