Reddy, A Siva and Basu, U (1977) Interface between 2 dissimilar fluids beneath a sheetpile cofferdam. In: JAWRA Journal of the American Water Resources Association, 13 (4). 735 -746.Full text not available from this repository. (Request a copy)
A closed form solution is presented for determining the shape and location of the interface between two dissimilar fluids (having different densities) when steady flow takes place through a homogeneous and isotropic porous medium, into a sheetpile cofferdam; the interface is assumed to be sharp and the lower fluid stationary. The solution is obtained using the inverse hodograph. Numerical results are presented in nondimensional form for various parametric conditions in the physical plane; the interface pattern, as also the seepage discharge and exit gradient distribution are shown. The critical conditions of the interface are studied.
