RMC Breach Parameters Suite

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) Risk Management Center (RMC) developed a set of toolboxes to help dam and levee safety risk assessors assess initial dam breach parameters.
RMC Empirical Embankment Dam Breach Parameters Toolbox
 
RMC Embankment Dam Failures Toolbox

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) Risk Management Center (RMC) developed RMC Empirical Embankment Dam Breach Parameters Toolbox as part of the RMC Breach Parameter Suite of Microsoft Excel spreadsheets to support risk assessments for dam safety. The spreadsheet tools contained in this toolbox assess the initial dam breach parameters using the empirical relationships of Bowles et al. (2014) [revised Xu and Zhang (2009)], Xu and Zhang (2009), Froehlich (2008, 1995), Von Thun and Gillette (1990), U.S. Bureau of Reclamation (1988), and MacDonald and Langridge-Monopolis (1984) as well as the peak breach outflow from various regression equations.

  The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) Risk Management Center (RMC) developed RMC Embankment Dam Failures Toolbox as part of the RMC Risk Calculations Suite of Microsoft Excel spreadsheets to support risk assessments for dam safety. The spreadsheet tools contained in this toolbox assess the initial dam breach parameters by comparison to embankment dam failures using the databases of Wahl (1998), Froehlich (2008), MacDonald and Langridge-Monopolis (1984), Ehasz and Bowles (2014), and Xu and Zhang (2008). Searchable databases of embankment dam failures are also included.
This is the RMC Empirical Embankment Dam Breach Parameters Toolbox version 1.0.   This is the RMC Embankment Dam Failures Toolbox version 1.0.
