Dams and Spillways Are a Critical Part of U.S. Infrastructure With estimates of 84,000 structures nationwide, dams and spillways are essential for controlling flooding, water distribution and management, and providing hydroelectric power. Unfortunately, these structures cannot last forever. The average age of dams and spillways in the US is 57 years, seven years over the typical 50-year lifespan ...
A load cell, as the name suggests, is employed to transform force into a readable electrical output. It is also known as a force transducer and converts tensions, pressure, compression or even torque ...

The 131B-01 Accelerometer uses a Micro-Electro-Mechanical System (MEMS) variable capacitance displacement sensor. Because no coils or magnets are used, the accelerometer is inherently stable over temperature, with excellent reliability, linearity, hysteresis, and noise levels. The 131B-01/3 Tri-axial Accelerometer is best suited to structural applications.
This webinar will review the history of dam safety governance development in the US from 1876 to present day. The governance development timeline will place key failures and incidents into perspective and show how such events triggered state and federal laws and the development of risk analysis methods and best practices that form a key cornerstone of dam safety practice in the US today. A key ...
