Tutorial Series: Analyzing a Homogeneous Embankment Dam using FLAC 8.1
This is a three part tutorial series to calculate the total and effective stresses and water flow in a homogeneous embankment dam.
In part one, the total stresses due to gravity are calculated. LEARN MORE
In part two, the pore water pressures are calculated in the embankment, and at a specific point, and the water flow into a blanket drain is also calculated. LEARN MORE
In part three, the soil density values will be updated, the reservoir mechanical pressures will be added, and the effective stress recalculated. LEARN MORE
