Proceedings of the workshop are available HERE

The design and maintenance of existing dams are a challenge for the whole engineering community. Numerical modelling has become an indispensable tool for design and safety assessment of dams. The ICOLD Committee on “Computational Aspects of Dam Analysis and Design” has, during its long activity, organizes Benchmark Workshops with the aim to provide an opportunity for engineers, researchers, and operators to present and exchange their experiences and the latest developments related to the proper use of numerical modelling for design, performance evaluation and safety assessment of dams.

The themes of the 16th Benchmark Workshop were the following:

  • Theme A: Dam behaviour prediction
  • Theme B: AAR affected dam
  • Theme C: Behaviour of the embankment dam
  • Open theme

If you are eager to solve any of the workshop themes the formulation documents for themes A, B, C can be found on these web pages under Education.
