Dams

Dams

Different dam structures require different monitoring solutions and finding the ideal instrumentation for each dam is important to gather suitable data. Rigid concrete dams such as gravity, arch and buttress variants will require more structural monitoring solutions looking primarily at deflections and loads. Earth dams, embankments and rock-fill dams demand a more geotechnical monitoring plan focused on ground movement and stability.

We can produce comprehensive monitoring programs for short- or long-term monitoring of dam structures to record real-time data and provide project security.
