High profile dam experience
CTLGroup has had a hand in a significant number of the dams in the U.S., whether during construction, in-service evaluation or forensic studies. Because the success of a dam is critical to the entire ecosystem throughout the area, serious expertise is needed to correctly handle dam and levee questions as they arise. CTLGroup has helped its clients solve complex challenges for dams and levees for decades.
Dams are regularly used for power generation and water containment, so generally their operations cannot be interrupted or suspended for evaluation. CTLGroup expertly provides comprehensive solutions while tackling the individual challenges that each dam presents. Example services include:
- Various structural evaluation techniques, including nondestructive testing
- Mass concrete consulting for the major concrete pours involved in dam construction
- Materials testing and consulting for issues, including concrete strength, aggregate reactivity and petrographic analysis
