Condition evaluation of water retaining structures by a functional approach Comparative practices in Canada and France

Abstract : Hydro-Quebec and Cemagref have implemented condition evaluation methods for water retaining structures: the condition index (CI) method for embankment dams in Quebec, and SIRS Digue fin. fluvial dykes in France. These methods were developed from similar approaches, including functional analysis, gathering and formalization of knowledge about failure mechanisms, and definition of performance indicators. Development of both methods was done within a group of experts and lead to technical guides that explain the application limits. The main objective is to prioritize maintenance tasks within a large inventory of dams for Hydro-Quebec. and for fluvial dykes, in France. The use of these methods reaches also other goals at the same time: aid to safety review and dam diagnosis, and experience transfer among the technical staff.
