Earthquake monitoring systems for specialized purposes or industries
iDAM consists of a Data Center combined with a network of smart, IP-ready Seismic Stations. The basic iDAM System consists of four 3-channel Accelerographs at the dam foundation, crest, abutment, and one free field station.
OASIS systems provide information towards enabling rapid post‐event assessment of critical and essential structures that cannot easily evacuate or sustain expensive downtime.
Condor2 is a comprehensive earthquake monitoring solution for the power generation industry in general – including extremely vulnerable facilities like nuclear and LNG plants in particular. An all-in-one system, delivering confidence in continuing safe operations after an earthquake.
Initial and periodical geotechnical assessments of earth structures ensure seismic safety
Dams, retaining structures, embankments, and natural slopes located in seismically active areas pose a high risk if not verified for stability and level of deformations under earthquake loads. The key advantages are:
• Develop earthquake-resistant design
• Enable earthquake-related risk and reliability assessments for decision making
• Take appropriate remedial actions
Site characterization assessments of the seismic ground response reveal the significant effects of local site conditions during seismic excitations
Providing the capacity of delivering site characterization information aids in understanding and interpretation of data collected from such systems as iDAM. The key advantages are:
• Obtaining a site-specific soil model is essential for seismic analyses
• Taking appropriate measures where needed
