ADMIRE: Autonomous Dam Monitoring with Integrated Real-time Evaluation
Dams have a large impact on public safety in the United States. Dam failures are far reaching and may result in loss of property, loss of life, and loss of water storage. Despite this fact, dam inspections occur infrequently and are performed unevenly across the structure. As such, current dam monitoring practice is often incapable of detecting internal erosion - a primary failure mode in dams. The inability to detect internal erosion results in increased risk of catastrophic failure. This research focuses on the development of a wireless sensor network (WSN) application to autonomously and ...
