First RCC Dam Project in Germany

HRB Waldbärenburg could be the first RCC (Roller Compacted Concrete) dam built in Germany. Dynardo conducted a preliminary thermal and structural analysis with multiPlas, optiSLang and ANSYS in order to analyze the sensitivity of various parameters in the dam design.

The RCC dam technology provides ecological advantages, such as essentially lower impacts on the environment by shorter time of construction and smaller designs.
