course 1: STRUCTURAL ANALYSIS AND REHABILITATION OF CONCRETE DAMS AND SPILLWAYS

About the course Speakers

The course aims to present technological advances and experiences with exposure of real cases and solutions adopted, including the numerical modeling of the process of construction of concrete dams and spillways, materials and methods applied to the structural rehabilitation, as well as the discussion of the results obtained.

course 2: SMALL DAMS

About the course Speakers

The design of small dams has, as a noteworthy aspect, the possibility of occurrence of difficulties that can be, in their detection and solution, as complex as those of large dams. In contrast, the available resources for carrying out tests and studies are proportionally much lower than those used in large dams. Additionally, in general, the engineers involved in the small dam projects have less experience and sensitivity for the safety problems and their causes.

The program of this course was stablished to give to the participants, in the aforementioned context, the knowledge and understanding to take into consideration all the aspects of design, construction, maintenance and rehabilitation related to small embankment dams.
