Thesis Project: Measurement of existing groundwater pipes in filling ponds | Vattenfall | 2019-09-27

Published: 22 August 2019

The purpose of the thesis is to clarify the actual location of groundwater pipes in filling ponds through measurement with a type of inclinometer developed in Canada and to evaluate other applicable uses in dam safety with the measurement method. Furthermore, the purpose is to carry out an analysis of how drift from a theoretical position affects the interpretation of measured value and the assessment of dust safety. In support of the analysis, for example, theoretical simulations of, for example, stability, design leakage and interpretation of internal erosion based on temperature measurement are performed.
