Abstract

A 16m deep sheeted excavation failed by piping of the base. The sequence of events leading to this failure is described and served as a field case to study the hydraulic nature of the project using flownet, electrical analogy and finite element methods.

Dewatering, Hydraulic Failure and Subsequent Analysis of a Sheeted Excavation

A 16m deep sheeted excavation failed by piping of the base. The sequence of events leading to this failure is described and served as a field case to study the hydraulic nature of the project using flownet, electrical analogy and finite element methods.
