Shape of Phreatic Line in Earth Dam without Filter


A dam is a barrier that restricts the flow of water and can be used to collect the water and this water may be utilized for many purposes.   A Dam can be constructed using different kinds of materials. In earth dams the construction material is rocks and soil. The water that the dam holds f

A Soil mass is the huge collection of small particles we call soil grains. These soil grains have mass so they exert force as weight downwards on other particles. Weight is a force and we represent it in Newton or Kilo Newton.   These soil grains due to their own weight gets pushed by all th
