Unformatted text preview: Determine the total, elevation, and pressure heads at points A, B, and C. Choose the datum to be at the tailwater elevation. 4. For the 1D flow configurations (1) and (2) shown in Figure 2, determine the elevation head, total head, and pressure head at the top and bottom, and on plane XX in the soil column. Calculate the pore water pressure on plane XX for configurations (1) and (2). 5. List the six possible solution methods that Craig mentions for deriving the flow net, the solution to the 2D seepage problem (note, one of them applies to solving only relatively simple problems). (Section 2.4). 25 cm 40 cm 20 cm filters/diffusers 5 cm 30 B C A 12 cm Figure 1 Figure 2...
