Then, q kh Nf 3:5 5:8 105 m3 =s per m 5 105 3:00 9 Nd The pore water pressure is determined at the points of intersection of the equipotentials with the base of the structure. The total head (h) at each point is obtained from the flow net. The elevation head (z) at each point on the base of the structure is 2.50 m. The calculations are tabulated below and the distribution of pressure (u) is plotted to scale in the figure.

Then, q kh Nf 4:2 4:7 106 m3 =s per m 2:0 106 5:00 9 Nd Seepage 9 Figure Q2.5 2.6 The scale transformation factor in the x direction is given by Equation 2.21, i.e. pffiffiffiffiffiffiffi pffiffiffiffiffi kz 1:8 xt x pffiffiffiffiffi x pffiffiffiffiffiffiffi 0:60x kx 5:0 Thus in the transformed section the horizontal dimension 33.00 m becomes (33.00 0.60), i.e. 19.80 m, and the slope 1:5 becomes 1:3. All dimensions in the vertical direction are unchanged. The transformed section is shown in Figure Q2.6 and the flow net is drawn as for the isotropic case. From the flow net, Nf 3.25 and Nd 12. The overall loss in total head is 14.00 m.
