Sir I have Done Tutorial 09 - Stability of dam under rapid draw down by changing the dimensions of the base of core.
Actual base coordinates are (10,0) and (-10,0)
On a thought to know how the factor of safety changes by changing the core dimensions i have changed them to (15,0) and (-15,0).
But I can't get output. Intial phase (high reservoir) is not getting calculated.
I have attached the screenshot and data.success file of that error.
Please kindly look over my problem sir.
Dear J. Usha Kranti,
In your project we can see information about error in log info in Phases window:
According to Reference manual, Appendix H, hint for error 34 is:
The groundwater flow calculation did not converge. Please check the input parameters and the phase settings.
I know from experience that flow calculations are quite sensitive to mesh density. If you have big finite elements, you may have some calculation issues.
In such cases I locally refine mesh in dam (embankment). For instance 0.5 in dam clusters:
As a result Initial phase is successfully calculated:
