# Question Use the Dupuit method to construct the upper flow boundary ofseeping water through the dam shown in Figure with 20ft of upstreamwater. There is a 7.5ft toe filter with 5ft of downstream water.The unit weight of permeability of the dam material are 100pcf and1.0*10-7cm/sec respectively. Calculate the seepage lossand effective stress at a point 40ft from the toe of the dam at thebottom most point of the dam. 25ft 7.5ft 20ft 25ft 5ft 37.ft 30ft Impermeable Layer

Use the Dupuit method to construct the upper flow boundary of seeping water through the dam shown in Figure with 20ft of upstream water. There is a 7.5ft toe filter with 5ft of downstream water. The unit weight of permeability of the dam material are 100pcf and 1.0*10-7cm/sec respectively. Calculate the seepage loss and effective stress at a point 40ft from the toe of the dam at the bottom most point of the dam.
