167 Numerical Analysis on the Seepage Field of Hardfill Dam Foundation
Download citation file:
Hardfill dam is a new type of dam, which is developed recently. The aim of the paper is to analyze what geologic condition is suited to construct the dam by considering the characteristic of the Hardfill dam itself and to study for the given geologic condition how to choose the reasonable impervious and drainage system to control the dam body and foundation's seepage to make sure the safety of the project. After analyzing many familiar dam foundations geologic condition, two types of typical Hardfill dam foundation are concluded. The dam foundation seepage field law is analyzed by dam foundation seepage...
