Matka Dam Safety: Showcasing our Advanced Seismic Monitoring


Share This Post

At Digitex, our mission is to provide real-time Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) systems that ensure the safety and integrity of critical infrastructures across various industries. One such successful implementation is our state-of-the-art seismic monitoring system at the Matka Dam in Skopje, Macedonia. In this blog post, we’re excited to share details about this project and demonstrate how our SHM solution effectively monitors and safeguards the dam’s structural integrity.

For the Matka Dam project, our team installed a 12-channel RTR system designed to monitor the dam’s structural response. The system includes 9 channels of acceleration and 2 channels specifically for monitoring existing cracks in the dam’s body. This comprehensive monitoring solution offers real-time insights into the dam’s condition, allowing us to detect and address any potential issues promptly.

Key Features of Our Seismic Monitoring System at Matka:

  • Automatic notifications: Our system automatically sends SMS and email notifications to a list of subscribed users in the event of an earthquake. This ensures timely alerts and swift response from the relevant authorities.
  • Real-time visualization of seismic events: We provide automatic visualization of recorded seismic events on a website, allowing for easy access and analysis of the data.
  • Automatic report generation: Our system streamlines the documentation process by generating a PDF report automatically after a seismic event, providing stakeholders with essential information.
  • Advanced data processing: Our system extracts multiple parameters, such as PA, PV, PD, FFT, and CAV, through automatic data processing capabilities. This in-depth data analysis helps stakeholders make informed decisions about the dam’s safety and maintenance requirements.
  • Secure data archiving: We ensure the secure storage and easy retrieval of historical information by archiving all data in an SQL database.
  • Chronological search of recorded seismic events: Users can easily search for and access all recorded seismic events via our web server, allowing for efficient data analysis and comparison over time.

The Matka Dam project in Skopje, Macedonia, highlights our commitment to providing cutting- edge SHM solutions for various applications and industries. Our advanced seismic monitoring system effectively safeguards the dam’s structural integrity, demonstrating the value and efficacy of our technology in protecting vital infrastructures worldwide. At Digitex, we remain dedicated to the ongoing development and implementation of innovative SHM solutions to ensure the safety and security of our clients’ assets.
