Groundwater-Structure Interactions

Featured Video Play Icon

Groundwater can sometimes wind up in unexpected places, given the way it interacts with subsurface structures. In this Practical Engineering video, Grady discusses the paths that groundwater takes around structures and how civil engineers account for groundwater-related forces on dams and other buildings. As always, he illustrates with excellent model demos, allowing viewers to see groundwater interactions for themselves. (Image and video credit: Practical Engineering)
