Dam Engineering

Design criteria for dams are constantly evolving, generating the need in the design of new dams for the adoption of upgraded parameters and in the maintenance or extensions of existing dams, additional works to ensure compliance with changing standards.

The principal areas in which Menard Oceania can assist with these matters are in the treatment of the dam foundation rock to eliminate seepage and erosion, the improvement of safety margin against failure by the use of high capacity vertical rock anchors, upgrading or replacement of the dam core, installation of cut-off walls and drains as well as spillway and slab anchors often combined with monitoring of dam performance.
