Use of Seismograms for Analysis of the Condition of the “Dam – Bed” System at the Chirkey HPP

  • A. N. Marchuk
  • N. A. Marchuk

Interaction of the arch dam at the Chirkey HPP with the bed and rock masses of the banks is analyzed on the basis of data derived from an innovative seismologic monitoring system, and the results are compared with multiyear official scientific observations relative to assessment of the “dam – Bed” system.
