Dam Performance and Safety

Instrumentation systems for dams are generally designed according to the type of dam to be monitored, concrete gravity, earthfill, rockfill, arch, RCC or tailings. Among the most important measurements are pore pressures, settlement, stress, temperature, seepage and cracking. Nowadays, monitoring is often automated using custom data acquisition systems, readings at various predetermined intervals during the construction, impoundment and operation phases.
