Abstract:

Barrages are basically meant for diversion of river water through canals for irrigation purposes. There are numerous barrages in India for various purposes. Some old barrages in India are in poor condition and have developed cracks and need regular monitoring for safety of structure. A comprehensive programme of instrumentation and observation can play a major role in evaluating the stability of a structure. Proper guidelines for instrumentation of barrage are basic requirement for monitoring its performance and safety. BIS has framed guidelines for instrumentation of barrages and weirs in its code IS 14248:1995. These BIS standards recommend monitoring of barrage for uplift pressure, stress and strain, water levels, tilt and displacement. This paper discusses about the analysis, results and recommendations based on the monitoring of crack movement.
