by O.C. Zienkiewicz,

Serial Information: Journal of the Power Division, 1956, Vol. 82, Issue 4, Pg. 1-16

Document Type: Journal Paper


Triangular shaped dam is analyzed, and general elastic solution obtained which is valid for any arbitrary type of pressure variation; numerical answers given to special case, where line of drains placed inside dam reduced pore pressures discontinuously; general conclusions are drawn from results of computations.
