One of our very first projects involved gathering structural performance data on a lock Miter gate under a controlled barge impact. Since that very first project we have carried out many instrumentation projects on various hydraulic structures and developed some industry leading evaluation methods. Whether gross dam displacement, structural performance of large mechanical systems, or component level ASNT weld inspection is required, BDI has a host of solutions to better evaluate various civil, geotechnical or mechanical components on hydraulic structures. With the cost of maintaining mission critical component on these structures being so high, additional data and insight can guide in more efficient design or supporting the argument of keeping an asset and reallocating that budget to other projects. Whether the issue is an emergency or data to help guide preservation or rehabilitation, we are that team member that can deliver trusted results. hydraulic structures

Structural and Subsurface Spillway Inspection Services

MITIGATING RISK AND MAINTAINING PUBLIC SAFETY BY PROVIDING DAM SPILLWAY OWNERS WITH A FULL ASSESSMENT OF THEIR STRUCTURE

Fusing multiple NDE techniques and deploying efficient data collections methods, spillway owners can receive a detailed and complete mapping of both the integrity of the spillway structure itself and the geophysical conditions below the spillway.
