Analysis Seepage and Uplift Pressure for Al-Shamiya Barrage South of Iraq
Engineering and Technology Journal,

AbstractThis study aimsto analyze the settlementphenomena ofAl-Shamiya barrage located south of Iraq then shows if it is located within the safety limits. The two-dimensional model based on the finite elements specified softwarehas been used to analyze the seepageand uplift pressure under barrage to conclude if there is a piping and excessive uplift that may have the responsibility for the settlement. The results of the analysis illustrate that some default cases at which the barrage is not safe, however, ata design statthe barrage is safe. This indicates that the seepage pattern doesn’t lead to piping phenomenon, accordingly excluding its effect on the settlement problem.
