The course will cover the principles of seepage through soils, related problems with erosion and piping, and methods for preventing and mitigating these problems. Specific topics will include Darcy's law, permeability of soils, flow nets, free surface problems, erosion and piping, filter criteria, remedial measures, and use of computer programs for design and analysis.
