Embankment dams are structures used for water storage, energy production , flood control and irrigation. One of the main causes of the embankment dam failure is seepage .

Numerical analysis using computer programs are widely used to mode l a variety of seepage flow conditions in embankment dams. Numerical analysis using abaqus of an embankment dam is a process in which the problem is represented as it appears in the actual condition of real world and is interpreted in abstract form.
