REServoir Survey Analysis and Sedimentation Simulation
RESSASS enables engineers to quantify reservoir storage volume reductions due to sedimentation, and
the impact of reservoir operating policies on these losses.
Sedimentation is reducing the storage capacity of the world's reservoirs by more than 1% per year.
Operators assess capacity losses by routine surveys, and need to maximise the accuracy of volume
reductions computed from survey data. They also need to predict the impact of future sedimentation on
storage volumes, and the effect of reservoir operating policies in reducing sedimentation rates.
RESSASS carries out these computations in a user friendly software package.
RESSASS facilities:
Volume Analysis maximises the speed and
accuracy in undertaking analysis of range line
survey data. It uses the Stage Width
Modification Method to compute water and
sediment volumes, and contains powerful user
friendly graphical facilities for data checking
and editing. Stage - volume curves and the
distribution of sediment deposits through a
reservoir are produced.
Numerical Model simulates the impact of
alternative operating policies or changed water
and sediment inputs on future sedimentation. It
contains simple procedures for setting up and
calibrating the model, so it can be used by
engineers who are not specialists in flow and
sediment modelling.
RESSASS will run on a 486 or Pentium PC
running Windows 3.1 (or later).
Volume Prediction predicts the impact of future
sedimentation on stage capacity curves, using
empirical methods requiring minimal input data.
