## Presentation Description

DETERMINATION OF PHREATIC LINE WITH OR WITHOUT FILTER FLOW NET APPLICATION OF FLOW NET, The flownet consists of two sets of curvilinear lines known as flow lines equipotential lines., One set of curves (\y-lines) represents the path along which the individual particle of water seep through the soil are called stream lines or flow lines. Flow lines indicate the direction of flow.

### DETERMINATION OF PHREATIC LINE WITH OR WITHOUT FILTER FLOW NET APPLICATION OF FLOW NET:

DETERMINATION OF PHREATIC LINE WITH OR WITHOUT FILTER FLOW NET APPLICATION OF FLOW NET EMBANKMENT DAM

### PHREATIC LINE :

PHREATIC LINE Any point p can be located by F as center and QH as radious on PQ vertical line Phreatic line is started from B which is …… Line is always at 90 degree of the u/s face Discharge of dam = q = d2+h2 - d 1/16/2014 2

### The flownet consists of two sets of curvilinear lines known as flow lines equipotential lines.:

The flownet consists of two sets of curvilinear lines known as flow lines equipotential lines. One set of curves (\y-lines) represents the path along which the individual particle of water seep through the soil are called stream lines or flow lines. Flow lines indicate the direction of flow . 1/16/2014 15

### The other set of curves (<f> - lines) represents lines of equal head and called equipotential lines. The head loss caused by water crossing two equipotential lines termed as the potential drop.:

The other set of curves (<f> - lines) represents lines of equal head and called equipotential lines. The head loss caused by water crossing two equipotential lines termed as the potential drop . 1/16/2014 16

### PowerPoint Presentation:

The entire pattern of flow lines and equipotential line is referred to as a flow net. Thus, a flow net is a graphical representation of direction of seepage and head at every point. The space between two adjacent flow lines is called the flow path or flow channel The figure formed on the flownet between any two adjacent flow lines and adjacent equipotential lines is referred to as the field . 1/16/2014 17

### PowerPoint Presentation:

Characteristics of flow net : 1. The flow lines and equipotential lines meet at right angles to one another 2. The fields are approximately squares, so that a circle can be drawn touching all the four sides of the square. 3. The quantity of water flowing through each flow channel is the same. 1/16/2014 18

### PowerPoint Presentation:

4. The potential drop (head drop) between two successive equipotential lines is also s 5. Smaller the dimensions of the field, greater will be the hydraulic gradient velocity of flow through it. 6. In a homogeneous soil, every, transition in the shape of the curves is sr being either elliptical or parabolic in shape. 1/16/2014 19
