Dams and dikes, wiki style

he WikiBarDig is one of the wikis
of the French Ministry in charge
of environmental issues. The platform, launched in early August 2015,
aims to gather, leverage disseminate
essential technical and scientific information on dykes and dams. This project
is an initiative from Irstea teams.
With nearly 130 articles, the online
WikiBarDig allows students, teachers,
local authorities, consulting firms,
government departments, the general
public and others to access technical
or scientific studies on storage structures (dams) and protection systems
such as dykes. The areas covered
include technical, organizational and
regulatory aspects: types of structures,
design and construction, monitoring
over time, prevention of risks, etc.
Presentations of specific dams are
also offered.
Dealing with reservoir dams, flood
control dams, mountain check dams,

protection dams, protection dykes
(river, maritime) canal dykes...the
range of subjects is wide. Currently
at the helm are Irstea engineers and
experts from Aix-en-Provence who
select, synthesize and compile summaries from reference books, symposium papers, scientific and technical
articles in order to make them accessible. The opening of contributions to
other international experts is planned.
This is an effort in education and
thoroughness that is only in its beginnings. Corinne Curt, researcher at
Irstea Aix-en-Provence and project
coordinator, emphasizes the importance of continually updating the database to incorporate regulatory changes
and new technical knowledge. She
also announces the upcoming online
publication of "guided tours", educational paths dedicated to three main
themes and focused initially on dams.
These themes concern the life of the

structure (choice of site and type of
structure, degradation modes, ancillary works, etc.), protection and prevention, and the surveillance system.
They will be supplemented by a corpus of documents gathering reference
works on the subject and downloadable via the site.
