A knowledge-based system for dam safety assessment in taiwan

Abstract: In Taiwan, the assessment of dam safety is normally carried out by either visual inspection orstatistical analysis of monitoring data. The process is time-consuming and to a great extent relies onthe knowledge and expertise of the personnel. With increasing power in computing facilities,systematic approaches that adopt knowledge-based expert system techniques are potential solutionsfor managing dam safety in Taiwan. In this study, we investigate recent advances in this field andpropose a knowledge-based expert system for conducting dam safety assessment in Taiwan. Theframework and the weighting system of this system are discussed.

Keywords: dam safety assessment, knowledge-based system, web applications
