Dam Monitoring

The walls of a dam are continuously exposed to moisture. Under high pressure, the water penetrates into cracks and pores and may contribute to the damage of the structure. Therefore, many large dams have monitoring systems that continuously detect various physical properties of the construction.

Due to the slim design of the moisture sensor SMT100 of TRUEBNER it is particularly suited to be incorporated in masonry joints. Penetrating moisture can thus be safely and quickly recognized. A special calibration even allows for determining the water content in these materials.
