Inspection and Modeling for Dam Safety
Presentations will cover collecting and processing data for structural surveillance and monitoring, as well as the development and validation of models for analysis. This session will discuss real-world dynamic testing of three submerged concrete intake towers and the development of corresponding analysis models and a case study considering the Nyagak hydropower project, a concrete gravity dam.
