The Influence of Water Level Fluctuation on the Bank Subgrade Stability
Author(s): Wang Yongcun
Abstract: Using FLAC3D to simulate the change of the safety factor of the reservoir bank under different lifting rates of reservoir water level. The research shows that the safety factor of subgrade increases gradually with the increase of the water level of the reservoir and the higher the water level rises, the more the safety factor increases. When the reservoir water level falls, the subgrade safety factor decreases and the decrease rate is faster, the safety factor is reduced.
