Theoritical Formulae for Seepage Through Suspended Dam
Li Jun-chun (Dam Safety Monitoring Center, Ministry of Water Resoures, PRC)
Seepage patterns are quite different between "suspended dam" and nonsuspended dam and there are no theoritical formullae for seepage through suspended dam. Systematical theoritical formulae of this topic is presented and example is given. The theorical results are found to be in good agreement with results obtained by other methods - prototype observation, centrifuge model, analogous seepage model, inspection in-situ and FEM. It is concluded that the theoritical formulae presented are not only correct with reliable precisions, but also useful and simple for this kind of practical problems.
