QUEST Structures has extensive experience in design, seismic input, structural field investigations, and safety evaluation of concrete dams. Backed by state-of-the-art technologies, field measurements of actual dynamic response, and variety of project experience, we have developed and applied advanced finite-element (FE) procedures to design and seismic safety evaluation of concrete dams in the United States and abroad.
