A permeable soil layer is underlain by an impervious layer as shown in Figure 7.29. Knowing that k = 6 × 10 −3 cm/sec for the permeable layer, calculate the rate of seepage through this layer in m 3 /hr/m width. Given: H = 5.4 m and α = 7°. Figure 7.29 Redo Problem 7.1 for α = 5° and α = 9°. All other site conditions remaining the same, what impact does the slope angle have on the rate of seepage?
