THE OPTIMUM LOCATION OF CONCRETE SHEET PILES UNDER HYDRAULIC ‎STRUCTURE AFFECTED THE SEEPAGE WATER PRESSURE USING ANSYS ‎PROGRAM

The problem of water seeping through the earth dams or under concrete structure is regarded one ‎of the main reasons of the structures’ failure. This may be due to the failure in soil layer on which ‎the hydraulic structure is constructed or due to the water pressure resulting from a difference in ‎the level of the upstream and downstream. In previous studies have found that the use of ‎concrete sheet piles under the dams is one of the effective solutions to control the seepage of ‎water under structures, this study considers that control of this problem is by using sheet piles. ‎The 2-D F.E. model ANYSIS Program, has been used to analyze the effect of the optimum ‎location of concrete sheet piles affected on seepage water pressure underneath hydraulic ‎structures, when the stability against seepage water pressure against piping were calculated in ‎different cases. The results showed the water pressure reduce, when the sheet pile downstream is ‎used at 60° and depth 6m.‎
