Dams

 

The OSMOS system can be used to monitor the structural performance of dams as they age.

 

What can Dam Sturctural Monitoring accomplish?

  • Are you responsible for aging dams?  Are you concerned about the structural integrity of the dam?  The OSMOS system can provide long term monitoring of the dam to show you any change in strain (stress), changes in crack or movement of the dam.
  • Cracks can be monitored for change and a determination of the significance of the crack can be made.
  • Open and closing of sluice gates impose a load on the structure.  OSMOS system can establish if that load has a significant impact on the dam.
  • Long term monitoring of the dam provides a history of stress and strain, and tilt of the Dam during normal annual operation.
