One of the main challenges to perfom 3D numerical modelling is the creation of the 3D conceptual model, considering different data sources. This example create a Tailings Dam with a core and a filter using SVDESIGNER with the goal of conducting seepage modeling in SVFLUX.
The model considers the Foundation Surface as a collection of contour lines with coordinates at a .CSV file. The dam, core and filter were created through the use of the Road Builder tool, which works by generation a path from an input polyline (or polygon) and an specific cross-section. Taken as a whole, this can be used to represent concepts such as an actual road, a trench, an earth dam and many more types of engineered structures.
