Photogrammetric analysis of the grain size distributionof erosion protection at hydropower dams (English)
This master thesis was made to investigate the possibilities of using the Matlab-basedsoftware Basegrain to determine grain size distributions of erosion protections onhydropower dams. Basegrain is a photogrammetric tool developed to generate grainsize distributions and other information about coarse flood sediments by analyzing adigital photo of the stone bed. The investigation was made by validating the ability forBasegrain to assess grain size distributions of various materials smaller than the blocksused in an erosion protection by comparing sieving results or manual measurementswith the results obtained by the program. A statistical comparison was then made bycomparing the results from sieving and the program. The possibilities of using thesame method on existing hydropower dams were then investigated by determiningwhether the method was practically viable or not.The results showed that Basegrain generated grain size distributions for coarse gravelthat were very close to the sieving results. It also provided grain size distributions forlarger fractions of stones quite close to the results made by measuring the diameterof the stones by hand. The results also showed it was possible to use the samemethod on existing erosion protections on hydropower dams and obtain grain sizedistributions.
