Hydraulic Structures

As a dam owner, engineer or contractor when you look to reinforce or upgrade a dam’s structure, you want to do so knowing you're using an efficient solution that will guarantee long-term durability and resistance. Ideal for protecting hydraulic structures against flood abrasion and impact damage, a simple coating of Ductal® UHPC solution can greatly boost the strength and longevity of your structure, thereby minimizing the time and cost dedicated to maintenance.

 

Dam Reinforcement

Ductal® dam reinforcement solutions offer your structure the durability and resistance of ultra-high performance concrete (UHPC). An essential measure of protection when dams (as well as aprons, piers and spillways) are regularly exposed to severe conditions - including damage from moving solid materials, especially during floods. Add to this the regular hydraulic abrasion that dams are subject to and high maintenance budgets are a distinct reality.

Using our UHPC solution ensures both resistance to hydraulic abrasion and material impacts, limiting costly repair work.

 

Why choose Ductal®?

  • Ductal® offers both resistance to hydraulic abrasion and impacts.
  • Thanks to its optimized cementitious matrix and the use of metal fibers, Ductal® solutions act like a shield against extreme conditions such as carbonation and freeze-thaw cycles.
  • Ductal® UHPC solutions aim to keep your maintenance costs low thanks to the outstanding durability they bring to your structure.
  • All it takes is a simple coating or layer of UHPC on a pier or spillway to significantly extend its service life.
