**1 Hydraulic design for sub-surface flow
**

The sub-surface flow below a barrage causes two definite instability problems, a

s listed

below and illustrated in Figure 1.

1. Uplift forces due to the sub soil pressure that tends to lift up the barrage

raft floor,

and 2. Upward rising seepage forces through the river bed just down stream of

the solid

apron causes sand particles to erupt upwards and tends to piping failure of the

foundation.

Seepage forces would be the most dominating for gates closed condition, but wou

ld

also exist during some cases of full flow conditions, as shown in Figure 2.

It may be noticed that during the flow conditions, a part of the uplift forces

due to

seepage flow is negated by hydraulic pressure of the water on the downstream. Un

der

the closed gates condition, the downstream water depth is rather small.

In order to evaluate the uplift forces due to seepage flow, it might be worthwhi

le to recall

the mechanism of such flow, as seen from Figure3, the distribution of sub-surfa

ce

pressure, that is, the pressure of the water held within the pores of the soil i

s such that it

varies from a maximum along the upstream river bed to a minimum at the downstrea

m

river bed. The pressure head differential between the upstream and downstream is

expressed as a percentage and denoted by f. A comparison of pressure distributi

on

below the barrage floor from Figs. 3(a) and 3(b) indicate that the introduction

of sheet

piles reduce the pressure below the barrage raft floor. Infact, the seepage path

s

increase due to the introduction of sheet piles, consequently reducing the gradi

ent of

sub-surface pressure. It may be noted from the figure that the pressure at any

location of a certain

equipotential line is given by the following expression:

In equation (1), HU is the head of water on the upstream pool above datum and HD

is

the head of tail water above datum. If a flow net is constructed using both sub-

surface equipotential lines as well as stream

lines (Figure 4), an estimate may be made of the seepage discharge as given belo

w.

Assuming that a flow channel is designated by the space between two adjacent

streamlines, (Figure 4) then the flow through all such flow channels may be cons

idered

equal and amounting to, say, ?q m3

/s per metre width. If there are Nf flow channels,

then the total seepage flow q would be given as below:The quantity ?q is governe

d by Darcys law is

?q = k ?h/ ? s ? n (3)

In the above equation k is the coefficient of permeability, ?h is the potentia

l drop

between two equipotential lines, ?s is the potential length along the stream li

ne of flow

net square and ?n is the length normal to the stream line and pressures the other

length of the square. ?s and ?n are nearly equal and ?h is equal to Hdiff / Nd whe

re

Hdiff is the head difference between upstream pool and downstream tail water lev

el and

Nd is the number of equipotential drops between the upstream and the downstream

river bed. Hence,

q = Nf k Hdiff / Nd = k Hdiff Nf / Nd (4) The above equation enables the

computation of the seepage quantity q.

The seeping water below the barrage exerts a dynamic pressure against the river

bed

particles through whose voids the water is moving. This may be estimated by

considering a small cylindrical volume of length ?l and cross sectional area ?

A in

appropriate units. The seepage force on this small volume arises due to the diff

erence

in pressure on either side of the cylindrical volume.

In Figure 5, these pressures are shown as p on the upstream and p + ?p on th

e

downstream sides of the infinitesimal volume. Of course, the higher pressure bei

ng on

the upstream side, ?p would be negative. An expression for the seepage force ?

F

acting on the cylindrical elementary volume may be expressed as:

?F = p. ?A - (p + ?p).?A (5)

This expression yields

?F = -?p. ?A (6)

Thus, the seepage force per unit volume of soil is given as:

?F / (?A.?l) = -?p /?l =-? g.?H/?l (7)

Where ?H is the difference in head of water on either side of the small volum

e.

Obviously ?H is negative, since pressure head drops in the direction of flow, an

d thus

the quantity on the right side of the equation would turn out to be positive.

At the exit end, where the stream line meets the river bed surface (B in Figure

5), the

seepage force is directed vertically upwards and against the weight of the volu

me of

solid held in the soil. If the seepage force is great enough, it would cause san

d-boiling,

with the ejection of sand particles causing creation of pipe-like voids through

the river

bed, on the other hand, the river bed particles at the entry point (A in Figure

5) do not

face such a problem, since both the seepage force and the particle weight are b

oth

directed vertically downward.

In order to provide safety against piping-failure at the exit end, the submerged

weight

(w) of the solid should be at least equal to the seepage force. This may be exp

ressed

as:

w = (1-n)(?s-?) g=-?g ?H/?l (8)

In the above, w is the submerged weight of the solids assuming a void ratio n.

?s and ?

stand for the density of the solids and water, respectively. The equation then s

implifies
