Abstract : A FORTRAN 77 computer program (LEVSEEP) was developed to analyze levee underseepage on IBM PC compatible microcomputers with an 8087 math coprocessor. The software and associated equipment plots cross sections and piezometer data; calculates seepage flow and substratum pressure; analyzes landside berm, river side blanket, cutoff and relief well control measures; and finally, estimates the construction cost o these alternatives. The results of example computer calculations agree favorably with hand solutions. The procedures for berm and relief well analysis reflect the current CE guidance in EM 1110-2-1913. The method of fragments is used for the analysis of cutoff. Riverside blanket analysis are based on procedures presented in the WES Technical Memorandum 3-424. The products are recommended for practical use by Corp's Districts having problems with flood control levees. (KR)
