Kakhovka HPP

Monitored parameters:

  • Seepage back pressure force over the HPP’s bottom and spillway dam;
  • Relative movements of the power house building blocks, spillway dam and sections of the right and the left bank of the abutments;
  • Vertical deformations (settlements) of the HPP construction, spillway dam, abutments, ground adjoinings and dams;
  • Total seepage flow through the structures;
  • Pressure damping of water seals;
  • Seepage regime (depression curves) in the body of ground dams, adjoinings and  their foundations.
  • Concrete structure relative horizontal displacements.
