Current Practice, Challenges and Potential Solutions of Modern Engineering Surveys and Deformation Monitoring of Dams

In partnership with the CDA, Alberta Environment and Parks (AEP) presents the second in a series of technical webinars highlighting practical applications of assessment and evaluation methodologies and techniques used by AEP for safety management of the dam infrastructure it owns and operates.
Surveying technologies have changed significantly over the past 15 years with such things as the addition of terrestrial scanning and UAV aerial surveys. In this webinar, Nathan Kroeker and James Deschamps, both of WATT Consulting Group, will discuss contemporary technologies and procedures used in deformation monitoring and engineering surveys of earthen dams and associated structures.


Key learning objectives

  2. Explain how changes in technology in the past several decades have affected the survey approach 
  3. Describe the design and analysis aspects of modern deformation monitoring surveys
  4. Discuss the potential sources of error/delays in deformation surveys and solutions 
  5. Demonstrate a practical application of deformation Surveys for dams with varying conditions
