This paper concerns the analyses of the flow nets within hydraulic fill dams used for the disposal of finely-crushed mine ore. Certain aspects of the paper will however apply to other earth dam problems and to the flow of water into drainage trenches. By means of the given formulae and curves it is possible, without drawing the flow net for the dam, to estimate the discharge through the dam and certain other geometric properties of the flow net.
