Levee body seepage: a refinement of an expeditious procedure for fragility curves and vulnerability diagrams’ assessment
Extensive flooding can be the result of levee system failures most frequently caused by the piping process due to seepage. The proper description of the seepage line is affected by the difficulty of estimating the hydraulic parameters, mainly the soil hydraulic conductivity. Therefore, the development of simple methods for a quick analysis of extended levee systems is fundamental to identify ...
