Development of a platform for the integration of physically-based numerical models and data-based models to dam management.
This project was conceived from the idea of putting together numerical models and data-based models. This combination can offer a set of advantages in order to increase dam safety:
Resulting numerical models will be more adjusted to real dam behavior and, in consequence, models will be more reliable.
Statistically-based models could be applied at earlier ages due to the generation of time series using numerical simulations.
The simultaneous analysis of both type of models will complete the knowledge about the level of safety in the dam.
A methodology for the calibration of model’s parameters will be developed.
Criteria for dynamic adjustment of emergency thresholds will be posed. This will permit an automated, up-to-date analysis of dam safety.
