Serial Information: Journal of the Soil Mechanics and Foundations Division, 1960, Vol. 86, Issue 5, Pg. 15-34

Document Type: Journal Paper


Waterremoving capabilities of two types of granular filter designs are analyzed by flow-net; typical solutions and numerical examples are presented to emphasize importance of boundary conditions and permeability upon water-removing capacity; use in dams and pavements.
