Study on the Influence of Sudden Change of Water Level on High Fill Canal Segment
Keywords:High fill canal segment, Sudden change of water level, Water conveyance project, Rainfall infiltration, Fluid-structure coupling
Extreme conditions will cause the water level of high fill canal segment to change suddenly, which will affect the velocity and pore pressure of the slope. In this paper, numerical method is used to study the influence of water level sudden change on seepage characteristics of high fill canal segment. HyperMesh software is used to establish the finite element model of typical high fill canal segment under complex foundation conditions. Through the combination of secondary development program and fluid-structure coupling calculation method, the fluid structure cou-pling effect of canal under sudden change of water level is analyzed in ABAQUS. The results show that when the water level changes suddenly, the pore pressure below the free water surface and the velocity near the free surface will be greatly affected.
