ATC Williams specialises in engineering of dams in mining applications for storage of tailings and water. Our innovative solutions are created in response to extremes in ground conditions, seismic design criteria, construction materials and climatic setting.
Our unique capability in dams engineering has been achieved through diversity in project delivery around the world.
Construction of embankments to provide containment for mine tailings or water management application. We have designed and constructed dam embankments with heights of up to 200 m, utilising soil and rock construction materials, with geosynthetic and other unique membrane lining systems, which highlights the diverse technical capability of our team.
Our Dams Engineering team provides high-calibre expertise for any project, with capability in the full range of dam construction types.
Dam break and failure impact assessment is an important part of the dam design process, supporting assessment of inundation extent, population at risk analysis and Consequence Category assessment for any setting. ATC Williams has state of the art capability for undertaking dam break analyses for both Newtonian and Non-Newtonian ﬂuids.
