Welcome to the website of the

NSERC/Hydro-Quebec Industrial Research Chair in Life Cycle Optimization for Embankment Dams

Phase 2 (2014 - 2020)

The main objective of the Chair is to develop tools to analyse and predict the behaviour of embankment dams, for service solicitations and extraordinary solicitations such as earthquake.

Under the direction of Professor Jean-Marie Konrad, as principal chairholder and Professor Jean Côté as associate chairholder, the chair began its work in autumn 2009. In the summer 2014, after an initial five-year term, the Chair has received financing for another five-year term. Phase 2 will end in July 2020.
