In my diploma, I dealt with the calculation of a dam-break wave due to possible collapse of the Loče dam. I calculated the wave using the HEC-RAS programme, which can use different equations to calculate, depending on the user's choice. Two types that are available are full dynamic equations and simplified dynamic equations.
In the introductory theoretical part, I mentioned the dams themselves and the dam-break waves. I also provided the basic equations that are used in the hydraulics for the calculation of waves.
This is followed by a description of the area under consideration and findings from the field inspection of the dam. Copyright images taken on the field inspection are added.
In the final part of the diploma, the results for each case are given separately. A comparison with the results of the project VODPREG 2 calculations has also been made. Advantages and disadvantages of the two programmes used are given in the conclusion.
