Engineer Technical Letter Request!

  1. Feb 27, 2012 #1
    As part of a research project on Dam Safety I am making some calculations for wave runup an wind setup on a existing embankment dam.
    Looking for information, I found a citation of the US Army Corps of Engineers related to my research topic, but I have not been able to find this document on the USACE online library.
    I am interested in the Engineer Technical Letter ETL 1110-2-221: Wave Runup and Wind Setup on Reservoir Embankments, USACE 1976.

    I was wondering if there is some way to get a copy of this document?
    (The document is freely distributed, but, maybe due it is quite old, I haven't been able to find it on internet).

    I would very grateful to receive any information related to my request.

    Go talk to a reference librarian. They can usually help borrow things from other libraries if your library does not have it.

    I agree with OldEngr63. Every time I was doing research projects and had issues finding copies of documents, the librarians in the university engineering library were wonderfully helpful.
