Remote SHM for Dams
Deformation monitoring of dams is key to avoid catastrophic loss of infrastructure and lives. Measuring and monitoring the deformations of these assets is a mandatory task due to the high risk they represent. These monitoring activities are usually based on geotechnical instruments (e.g., direct and inverted pendulum, inclinometers, tiltmeters, jointmeters) and geodetic-surveying methods (e.g., leveling, trilateration, triangulation, angular collimation, GNSS…). Although these methods are very accurate and reliable, they are often time-consuming and expensive, providing very punctual and isolated information.
