This presentation will showcase the latest techniques for real-time data collection and processing to help monitor the health of critical flood control assets like dams and levees. As remote data collection techniques improve and local data sensors become more plentiful, machine learning and data analytics can help predict the conditions that put flood control structures at risk. Additionally, we will review how flood control health monitoring can be tied with flood predictive services to provide risk feedback loop. Ultimately, this information is used as a decision support system to make risk-informed decisions more rapidly.

Learning Objectives

Upon completion of this presentation, attendees should be able to:

  • Explain how the combination of data harvesting and machine learning can identify hazards at flood control structures faster than traditional predictive modeling methods.
  • Discuss the future of this technology and how it will be applied to the AEC industry moving forward.
