Abstract: This report describes the development, testing, and use of a software package named LEVEEMSU. This software was specifically designed for levee underseepage analyses. As such, it provides certain advantages for such analyses not afforded by either conventional hand analysis or general-purpose seepage analysis programs. Using the finite-difference method and microcomputer hardware, equations and assumptions used in conventional levee underseepage analysis are extended to levee cross-sections having irregular geometry, variable permeability, and/or variable landside water levels. Thus, the program provides a capability to analyze the effects of ditches, borrow pits, sloping ground, and other irregularities in a manner consistent with current and traditional analysis procedures for uniform cross-sections. A number of parametric studies and prototype reach analyses are provided to demonstrate the capabilities of the program.
