As it has been highlighted by previous research work of GHHD in 2010 on "Dam related Risks in Europe and the Mediterranean: Threats and Prevention" (see the main results), the safety of large engineering objects (dams, etc.) depends not only on the quality of design and construction but also on the proper maintenance during exploitation and systematic monitoring of construction's condition. Accordingly, the development of cost-effective real-time telemetric monitoring/early warning systems of large engineering constructions using network of tiltmeters, strainmeters and other sensors and toolbox of linear/nonlinear dynamics processing methods of monitoring time series for systematic control of construction's stability was the main objective of the project.
