A Sensitive Remote Experiment for Small Scale Groundwater Flow Problems

José Couto Marques


Seepage or groundwater flow is an important topic in Civil and Mining Engineering curricula. A laboratory setup has been developed for small scale studies of seepage in embankment dams and other geotechnical structures for use in the context of a Soil Mechanics course. Numerical simulations have been prepared as a complement to the experimental setup. Remote access to the equipment has been made available via an IP camera. Student feedback about this sensitive remote experiment has been very positive.
