Unformatted text preview: Figure 2). If the rainfall is sufficient to maintain the water level at the surface of the soil and the pipe is just running to capacity, calculate the flow of water carried by the pipe per unit length. (Permeability of the soil: k = 5 x 10-3 cm/s) 0.334 φ Drainage pipe 1.33 m 0.67 m Heavy rain Impermeable Figure 2 Prof. M.

If the coefficient of permeability of the soil from which the dam is constructed is 3.47 x 10-4 cm/s, calculate the seepage loss per day from 100 m length of the dam....
