Abstract: As part of the Oroville Dam reconstruction effort, The Sensor Integration Branch (SIB) at the Engineer Research and Development Center (ERDC) performed non-destructive testing (NDT) on the trunnion anchor rods at Oroville Dam, Oroville, California, Thermalito Bypass, Oroville-Thermalito Complex, and Pyramid Dam, near Castaic, Southern California, through the use of ultrasonic guided waves. The results of the testing on every rod will be discussed along with qualitative analysis in determining whether a rod is intact or compromised. Analysis is based upon the expected results from other rods at the sites and data gathered from the trunnion rod research test bed at ERDC.
