Dam is the important structure use for water domestic store, electricity power supply, irrigation and flood control. Dam deal with reinforced concrete as a main material in construction. the material considerable safe when ability to support external and internal load. the capability of dam material due to safety is effect by degradation. Prevention monitoring must be conducted for high risk structure. Thus, moduli elastic is a mechanical property to measure stiffness and had relationship between stress and strain of material. While non-destructive and destructive testing in site inspection does not include reinforce and give incorrect moduli elasticity. New approach rule of mixture (Rom) with solid work software refer to United States Department of the Interior Bureau of Reclamation (USBR) standard design for small dam, give reliability monitoring with true sustain modulus elasticity of dam structure time by time. the concrete properties for sustain of moduli elasticity standard type gravity concrete dam value is 20.684 GPa. If the value decreases drastically from the standard, high precaution must be taken.
