Solving for area normal to flow per foot of trench.

area normal to flow per foot of trench


Inputs:

seepage rate or flow per foot of trench (QL)
permeability (K)
flow line slope (S)


Conversions:

seepage rate or flow per foot of trench (QL)
= 0
= 0
foot^3/day-foot
permeability (K)
= 0
= 0
foot/day
flow line slope (S)
= 0
= 0


Solution:

area normal to seepage flow/foot of trench (A)
= NOT CALCULATED
