Inspection of Cracks in Dam Body of a Reservoir in North America
A large reservoir in North America needs to perform routine inspection and maintenance on the arc dam to prevent cracks in a certain part.
The seepage water will pass through these cracks, aggravate the leakage and erode the soil quality of the dam. When voids are formed, it would cause the collapse of the reservoir and the concentration of seepage points. Reservoir personnel completes the dam inspection with CHASING M2.
Business Pain Points：
1. Due to the differences of gravity, the arc dam and dam base has uneven settlements which could easily cause the inconspicuous cracks. With great detriment, these kind of cracks are big potential risk inside of the dam. We can only know this risk by the analysis and calculation of long-term observation data of dam deformation or by the observation of the leakage amount and turbidity of the dam during the storage period.
2. Most of the cracks of the sluice are live cracks - the depth and width of the crack will change with the change of the external environment, like cracks caused by temperature or uneven settlement. Inspection must be done frequently in order to lower the risk.
