PERMEABILITY OF THE DIKE 1’S MATERIALS OF KAENG KRACHAN DAM, THAILAND
Keywords:Permeability, Soil Model, Calibration, Dam Instruments
Dike 1 of Kaeng Krachan Dam located in Phetchaburi province of Thailand constructed in 1966 with a reservoir capacity of 710 million m3. This large-scale project provides more than 55 years of irrigation and flood protection. Risk evaluation of dam is needed to be performed. The calibration of engineering properties of the Dike 1 is conducted because there is no database of those properties. The existing Dike 1 cross-section is a soil model, used for calculation. Piezometric level and flow rate obtained from the dam instruments were calibrated with the hydraulic head and the flow rate was determined by the SEEP/W model. The permeability coefficient of the Dike 1 materials can be analyzed by the calibration technique. The data of the dam instruments are helpful information, and the computer program is friendly to use. The coefficient of permeability of the soil of the Dike 1 of Kaeng Krachan Dam is determined and applied to risk analysis.
