An opened top and bottom circular steel caisson separates a low level excavation from the surrounding ground.
Determine the groundwater seepage flow rate q beneath the caisson for fully saturated soil. The pressure head
is T1 with respect to a datum To at the bottom of the caisson. Show the pressure contours and the flow path. Figure 163.1 Groundwater Seepage Problem Sketch Material Properties
k = permeability = 0.864 m/day a = 3.5 m
c = 10 m
To = 0 m (at Y = 7 m)
T1 = 3 m (at Y = 10 m) Analysis...
