Dams


Dams fulfil the essential functions of electricity production and hydraulic regulation. Regular mandatory controls are designed to inspect the condition of the structure in order to assess the impact of stresses - hydrostatic thrust exerted by the water on the cladding, under-pressures pushing the dam upwards, forces caused by seismic acceleration. 

Structural maintenance optimization carried out with the help of OSMOS aims to preserve the condition of the structure so that it is able to function in total safety. 

  • Detecting dimensioning errors
  • Increasing the reliability of the fatigue model
  • Assessing the impact of excessive stresses
