Textbook Problem

Repeat Problem 8.8 using L. Casagrande’s method.

**8.8** An earth dam is shown in Figure 8.27. Determine the seepage rate, *q*, in m^{3}/day/m length. Given:
*L*_{1} = 5 m, *H* = 7 m, *H*_{1} = 10 and *k =* 3 × 10^{–4} cm/sec. Use Schaffernak’s solution.

To determine

Find the seepage rate *q*, in

Explanation
