Successful dam construction and performance monitoring requires multi-disciplinary controls covering soil and rock mechanics, hydraulics, seismology, environmental engineering as well as civil engineering. Maxwell GeoSystems’ MissionOS ensures projects are communicating and speaking a common language and that quality data gets to where its needed quickly with useful tools to address construction concerns.
The Ulu Jelai Dam, Malaysia. Owner–Tenaga Nacional Berhad. Constructor– Salini. Systems – Maxwell GeoSystems
Dam design and construction begins with ground modelling and easy access to a variety of investigation data in crucial to success. With its 3D interface providing a rich contextual environment MissionOS is a great place to collaborate utilising the ready ability to extract data for analysis and republish results for sharing. At construction stage vast numbers of work elements are installed including ground supports, drill holes for grouting, fill layers with compaction in addition to concrete and all have requirements for pre and post quality testing and syn- and post- construction performance monitoring. The dynamic nature of construction means that the communication of information between partied needs to be automated so that nothing is missed. Quality in construction needs testing and where better to manage this than in MissionOS data models linked to configurable activity shift reports. Events such as instrument alarms and non-conformances are easily dealt with using the built-in blogging systems.
