Abstract : The Waterways Experiment Station conducted a series of sand and electrical model tests to study the effect of partial cutoffs on underseepage flow and substratum pressures landward of levees for various foundation conditions, seepage entrances, and landside top strata. The study also included the use of graphical flow nets and mathematical formulas for analyzing the effects of partial cutoffs on underseepage for some of the foundation conditions.
