Abstract: 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.
