NUMERICAL STUDY TO STABILISE LANDSLIDES BY TRENCH DRAINS

The present paper deals with the application of finite element method (FEM) for developing guidelines for designing the trench drainage system within the anisotropic soil media. Based on extensive FEM analysis, various diagrams have been provided from which , the inter-relationship between the maximum effective spacing, the maximum value of piezometric head and the maximum discharge of water flowing into the drains for various values of horizontal to vertical permeability and depth conditions of drains for any drainage system have been determined and discussed in detail. The present numerical results for isotropic soil medium compare quite favourably with those available from the literature. (A)
