Numerical Simulation Using the Finite Element Method to Investigate the Effect of Horizontal Drains and Cutoff Walls on Seepage and Uplift Pressure in Heterogeneous Earth Dams

Because of the potential hazards and repercussions of dam failure for downstream populations, earth dam design and problems are key considerations both during and after construction. The effectiveness of using cutoff walls and horizontal drains to reduce seepage flow from a conventional heterogeneous earth dam is the subject of this research. The primary goal of…
