    Multi-discipline Hydroelectric Dam Design

    Excellence in advanced dam infrastructure and civil design

Multi-discipline Hydroelectric Dam Design Solution

Improve the integration and better manage all engineering disciplines engaged in the design and construction of today’s complex dam infrastructure across the entire project lifecycle enabled through building information modeling (BIM). By providing design virtualization and digital collaboration, your teams will benefit from improved design coordination and analysis for all mechanical, civil, and structural elements of dam infrastructure design.

Bentley’s Multi-discipline Hydroelectric Dam Design solution enables design visualization for you to explore design alternatives and manage data across the entire project lifecycle. Your teams will benefit from improved dam systems coordination and analysis, which will result in the delivery of world-class dam infrastructure.

Capabilities
  • Acquire and manage geotechnical surveys

    • Improve your project efficiency by streamlining repetitive processes and eliminating the need to enter redundant geotechnical data. Easily access and manage soil boring information to improve your engineering decision-making process.
  • Design and model dam infrastructure

    • ​Perform parametric dam wall design combined with dam infrastructure design and modeling. Produce dam position comparisons. Integrate dam civil and infrastructure design disciplines to improve the overall quality and integrity of dam infrastructure.
  • Design stormwater systems

    • Minimize capital investments by simply entering your design restrictions: velocities, slopes, cover depths, and pipe and inlet matching offsets. The software product recommends the most cost-effective pipe sizes and invert elevations, avoiding unnecessary pipe trench excavation, while meeting design restrictions.​
  • Design substations and switchyards

    • ​Design and model substations, switch yards, and associated electrical systems in a single integrated environment. Produce associated electrical schematic deliverables such as one-line diagrams, wiring diagrams, and protection and control schematics. Design associated panel layouts with automated panel design deliverables.
  • Generate dam construction deliverables

    • ​Generate high-quality dam, civil, and related dam infrastructure design and construction deliverables directly from the integrated, multi-discipline dam infrastructure model. Track and manage deliverable revisions through comprehensive revision control functions.
  • Manage subsurface data

    • Use subsurface data management tools for data acquisition, validation, queries, reporting, and data sharing among stakeholders on a project level. Geotechnical, geoenvironmental, geology, and mining professionals can use subsurface data via a user-friendly interface.
  • Model and analyze terrain

    • Create intelligent models containing not only terrain data but also roadway or site features. You can use features to visually distinguish structure, appearance, and symbology in the design.
