|Abstract:||Inlet water tests allow measurement of discharges and water pressures in isolated sections of boreholes. A series of inlet water tests were carried out in an area of the foundation of an arch dam. In this paper, after a brief description of the tests, detailed three-dimensional numerical models developed for the analysis of the tests data are presented. Numerical and experimental results are compared and some conclusions are drawn about the usefulness of the information provided by inlet water tests and about suitable models to study the dam foundation’s hydraulic behaviour.|
