ANSYS Release 9.0 . 002114 . © SAS IP, Inc. 1–359 VM163: Groundwater Seepage (Permeability Analogy) Overview Reference: D. R. J. Owen, E. Hinton, A Simple Guide to Finite Elements, Pineridge Press Ltd., Swansea, U. K., 1980, pg. 89, article 7.4. Analysis Type(s): Thermal Analysis (ANTYPE = 0), with Analogous Seepage Variables Element Type(s): 2-D Thermal Solid Elements (PLANE55) Input Listing: vm163.dat Test Case 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 Geometric Properties k = permeability = 0.864 m/day a = 3.5 m b=8m c = 10 m h=3m Loading To = 0 m (at Y = 7 m) T1 = 3 m (at Y = 10 m) Analysis...
