Dam is a software for the design and optimization of earth and rockfill retaining structures. Dam is used to quickly calculate volumes and costs of water retaining and tailing dams according to various design parameters.


  • Design
    • Separation of input data (reservoir, foundation, axis, geometry, …)
    • Customization of unit costs for cut and fill materials
    • Editing of normalized typical sections applicable to multiple projects
    • Design criteria to define the components
  • Calculations
    • Calculation of cut and fill volumes per material
    • Calculation of foundation treatment surfaces
    • Calculation of costs per material
    • Production of detailed reports of quantities and costs based on chainage or elevation
    • Production of dam embankment as well as filled and excavated terrain models
  • Graphic outputs
    • Graphic presentation saved as style file independent from data
    • Direct link with Geotec database
    • Display of two cross sections at selected chainages
    • Display of a plan view from .dxf, .sit or .ctr files
    • Display of a longitudinal section
    • Integration of terrain models
