Abstract:

Instrumentation and monitoring of dams and reservoirs as part of dam safety programs provide more absolute and appropriate information with regards to the on-going performance of the dam. Their performance during both construction and operation are aimed at safety of dams and acquiring information to be used in progressing future design of dams. Instrumentation and monitoring are necessary in both the reservoir and the river basin, for normal operation and safety of dam. There are many cases of dam failures where early warning signs of failure must have been discovered if a good dam safety-monitoring program had been in place. The use of instrumentation for dam safety concern is increasing as the technology of instrumentation and ease of use advances. For this purpose use of proper instruments is thus very important phenomenon, therefore we must know the various instruments used to find different parameters. The paper presented is oriented to study the instruments essential to successfully implement a dam instrumentation program for dam safety.
