in Taiwan, with unevenly distributed abundant annual rainfall and the steep slope of rivers rushing the rain water flow in rapid speed to the sea, fabridam is highly regarded as one of the best suit for storage and diversion of rain water because of its elastic characters of anti-wearing and compaction resistance.

If properly designed using precast method in mesium or small size of canal, fabridam may perhaps be widely and applicably adopted, for its effective (unique) function of auto-operation which will save more labour cost and fit for economical considerations. The Following papers is a brief description on fabridam engineering proposed to be discussing.
