Abstract

The safe operation of dams greatly depends on good maintenance practice. The recent failure of the Shakidor dam (Pakistan, February 2005) as well as previous similar disasters such as Malpasset [Londe, 19761; Vaiont, 19642] underline the importance of investigating the efficiency of the monitoring systems and the use of the recorded data so far.
