As a complement to the activities of design, Technoproject has the technical and technological capacity to develop work on seismic geophysics and electrical methods.
Earth movements vary from one area to another. The seismic risk study determines the potential occurrence of strong quakes in an area or site by providing features such as the magnitude earthquakes and ground motion acceleration. The results of the study are essential to ensure the safety of hydroelectric projects and of other works
Technoproject has collected a large database of earthquakes recorded in Mexico, Argentina, Ecuador and Central America, which has enabled us to develop models and analysis for seismic risk studies.
Some hydroelectric projects where such studies have been performed:
When subjected to strong shaking, concrete structures and earth fill embankments are likely to sustain serious damage with potential losses of human lives and other catastrophic consequences..
The dynamic study provides basic elements for designing earthquake-proof safe structures. It is therefore necessary to carry out the dynamic characterization of materials as well as numerical simulations of the behavior of structures.
Hydroelectric projects where this type of studies has been executed:
