RUBBER DAMS

Rubber dams are air flled or water flled rubber
membranes attached to a concrete foundation. In a
flled or raised position, they act as a barrier to hold
back water to be used for irrigation or to generate
hydro-electric power. They can also be used to
control the ground water level or as tidal barriers
between an ocean and a river.
Our rubber membranes are made of high quality
hypalon rubber which is highly resistant to infuences
of water and sun light. The core of the membrane is
made of high-strength plyester fabric with thickness
of 1.9mm and a tear strength of a minimum of 400
kN/m in longitudinal and a minimum of 300 kN/m in
diagonal direction.

Components of rubber dam:
1. Concrete foundation
2. Rubber membrane
. Control shaft for flling and monitoring of the dam.

Flexibility
Rubber dams fex downwards, which means that
food waters will fow over the rubber dam
More economical construction
compared to steel gates
Rubber dam construction is 30% to 70% cheaper
than dams using steel gates. It is also quicker and
does not require heavy construction equipment in
most cases.
2. ADVANTAGES
Lower concrete sill height
Rubber dams have a lower spillway profle, i.e.
80 mm (3.15 inch), which means that the overall
concrete spillway is lower than steel gates. The
overall height for rubber dams is 500 mm while the
steel gates are 500mm to 800mm (approx. 20 inch to
32 inch). A lower spillway requirement means lower
construction cost.
Types of installation
Rubber dams can be installed with a single or dual
attachment system.

Single attachment dual attachment
Rubber dams can be installed at a right angle
or on a slope

Bank at right angle. Sloping bank.

Long life with minimum
maintenance
Rubber dams do not rust so they do not need
protective coatings or lubrication..
There are no large mechanical moving parts. Rubber
dams are noted for a reliable infation and defation
system. They are extremely reliable and can last up
to 30 years which depends an the river fow speed
and its carrying power.

Rubber dams are raised or lowered
evenly across the entire river span
They are very suitable for wide rivers.
Simple and reliable control system
Water level behind the dam is controlled by
controlling the membrane height.
Air infation: water level controlled with air pressure in
membrane.
Filling with water: water level controlled with water column in
control shaft.

Air flled dam membranes are infated using air blowers. For safety reasons, each dam is equipped with
two blowers to insure that the membrane can be quickly raised. Pressure relief valves are used to prevent
over-infation of the membrane. Defation and re-infation are controlled electronically with a Sava 1 or Sava
2 control system. Should all components fail, a safety exhaust valve prevents the water level from rising to
dangerous levels.
Advantages of air flled dams:
+ Quicker infation and defation.
+ Not affected by cold temperatures (air cannot freeze inside the membrane).
+ Lower construction cost.
+ Low energy consumption.
+ Ability to supply suffcient power by means of solar energy (phV cells).
Disadvantages of air flled dams:
Vandalism, puncturing or cutting of the membrane (area of the dam installation must be properly secured)
Uneven defating of the membrane.
Sinking of the dam centre
Vibration caused by overfowing nappe (controlled by installing defectors).

4. WATER FILLED DAMS
Compared to air infated dams, the water flled dams are more stable due to lower vibration/oscillation. On
the other hand, they take longer to fll or empty.
Dammed water level is controlled with hydrostatic pressure. Water level in the control shaft is 30cm to
40cm higher than the height of the dam. The difference in height generates the hydrostatic pressure which
controls the height of the membrane. Each dam has two pumps for pumping the river water into the control
shaft. Water level in the control pit can be raised by releasing water into the pit from the higher level water
fow. When using this method. there is no electric power required for flling the control pit. The height of the
dam is controlled by the water level in the control pit, controlled electronically with Sava 1 or Sava 2 control
system. An overfow pipe, set at maximum dam height plus 40 cm, protects the rubber membrane from
over-pressure. Should all elements of the dam fail (electric power outage or similar), a safety release valve will
protect the dam in case of excessive water levels.
Advantages of water flled dams:
+ Dam membrane more stable due to weight of water.
+ The membrane height adjustment is even across the entire length.
+ Can be operated without electric power.
.
Disadvantages of water flled dams:
Higher construction cost.
More time consuming during flling or emptying.
Potential of freezing
Vandalism through cutting or puncturing

6. MODULAR CONSTRUCTION METHOD
The modular construction method consists
of 6 phases.
1. Project planning:
Following site visit and review of construction plans,
drawings are prepared for:
Plumbing installation.
Rubber dam anchoring elements.
Rubber membrane design.
Wiring diagrams.
Plans and drawings are generated using
MS Project, AutoCad and Solid Edge programs.

2. Supply of the control shaft structure:


For air flled dams, we can supply pre-fabricated
control shaft upon customers request. Installation
is done under our supervision. Air blowers are
subsequently installed along with electronic control
system. The entire control system can also be
installed in a special container, which we can supply
upon customers request
.
. Installation of piping:
Pipes for flling and emptying the dam
are installed prior to pouring
the concrete base.

4. Prepare and install the anchoring system:
Membrane bottom anchoring steel channels are
welded to the steel wire mesh prior to pouring of
concrete.
5. Delivery and installation of rubber membrane:
Upon completion of the dam anchoring system,
the rubber membrane, flling system, and electronic
control system are delivered to site. The installation
of the rubber membrane takes 3 to 4 days,
