Example problem originally published by Bowles in 1984.
Example problem originally published by Bowles in 1984.
Typical clay dam representation. Creation time = 14 minutes.
This model was created by importing geometry from an AutoCAD DXF file.The purpose of this numerical model is to illustrate the ability of SVFLUX to automatically create a mesh and analyze a very detailed earth dam cross-section.
The intent of this numerical model is to determine the proper location of flow lines given that there is a cut off wall placed beneath a weir. This model is a very classic numerical model that has been traditionally solved with the use of flow lines and manual construction means. A number of solutions to this model are available using flow nets.

SoilVision Systems Ltd. is pleased to announce the addition of new distribution models which simulate situations described in the Engineering and Design Manual for Coal Refuse Disposal Facilities which is distributed by the Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA). The models were developed in order to facilitate the training of mining companies on the use of the SVOffice software in this industry. The models represent typical situations and design scenarios outlined in the design manual for the construction of earth dams for containment facilities.

The earth dam foundation contact model is a classic numerical model which is described in the Engineering and Design Manual for Coal Refuse Disposal Facilities which is distributed by the Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA). The numerical model is used to assess the effectiveness of a clay core in dissipating the energy of water.
Simple model of an earth dam. English units used. Model creation time = 46 minutes.
This particular numerical model must illustrate the use of seepage software to determine the relative flux, which might occur through an earth dam compared to underneath an earth dam.
Demonstration of an earth dam containing a pit of tailings. Created using surfaces defined by planes.
This model creates a simple two-region model in which there is a significantly sized filter at the downstream toe of the earth dam. The purpose is to determine the effect on the resulting water table and how it will impact design of the downstream filter.
Homogenous earth dam to be used for comparison against EarthDam_WithDrainageBlanket.
Earth dam that replicates EarthDam_NoDrainageBlanket except with the inclusion of a drainage blanket designed to reduce piping failures.
This problem will determine the final position of the phreatic surface and the flux rate through an earth fill dam. The model will perform a stochastic analysis. Run 200 points.
Pentland (2000). This scenario involves the use of a review by pressure calculation of the location of the downstream exit point. This numerical model is intended to be one of the simple forms of creating a flow model for an earth dam. It is a homogenous numerical model in which the boundary conditions and material properties and entire model set up are simplified greatly.
This model will determine the final position of the phreatic surface and the flux rate through an earth fill dam.The earth fill dam example is the classic numerical model.The model is used to assess the effectiveness of a clay core in dissipating the energy of the water.
