The paper presents the results of the application of the Particle Finite Element
Method (PFEM) to the analysis of some of the more complex phenomena related to dam
hydraulics: shock waves in spillways, aeration in bottom outlets, and erosion in the downstream river bed. Furthermore, the method has been applied to the study of the
consequences of landslides in reservoirs: the wave generation, its propagation, and the
affection to the dam.
