in hydraulic engineering, a segment of a river where the structures of a hydroengineering complex are located and where the pressure front is formed by the structures. There are usually two steps involved in the selection of a site. First, a site region is designated in conformity with a general plan for managing the water of the particular river, and then a site axis is determined. The axis is understood as a strip of a certain width that cuts across the river and valley; it may be straight, that is, perpendicular to the banks of the river, curvilinear, or broken. An optimal choice of the site is arrived at by a comparison, from both a technical and economic point of view, of the various alternatives with due regard for climatic, topographical, hydrological, geological, and construction conditions.
