Textbook Problem

For the weir shown in Figure 8.26, calculate the seepage in the permeable layer in m^{3}/day/m for (a) *x*′ = 1 m and (b) *x*′ = 2 m. Use Figure 8.13.

(a)

To determine

Find the seepage in the permeable layer in

Explanation

Given information:

The hydraulic conductivity of the permeable soil layer *k* is

The height of the water level *H* is 6 m.

The depth of penetration of the sheet pile *S* is 4 m.

The thickness of the permeable soil layer

The value of width *B* is 8 m.

Calculation:

Determine the ratio of

Substitute 4 m for *S* and 8 m for

Determine the value of *x* using the relation

Substitute 8 m for *B* and 1 m for

Determine the ratio of

Substitute 3 m for *x* and *b*.

Determine the ratio of

Substitute *b* and 8 m for

(b)

To determine

Find the seepage in the permeable layer in
