Ponded Water

Ponded Water (e.g. water which is impounded against a dam or a slope) is represented as a blue hatch pattern above the ground surface, as shown in the figure below.

The blue hatch pattern represents Ponded Water which is defined by Total Head boundary conditions if your model includes finite element groundwater seepage analysis.

The display of Ponded Water can be turned on/off in the Display Options dialog, or by selecting the Ponded Water Ponded Water icon toolbar shortcut.

Ponded Water Load

It is important to note that the blue hatch pattern only represents the Ponded Water defined by the Total Head boundary conditions used for the finite element seepage analysis. This does NOT define the weight of the Ponded Water (for the stress analysis).

The WEIGHT of the Ponded Water, which is required for the stress analysis, is defined independently using the Add Ponded Water Load option (in the RS2 Model program). The weight of the Ponded Water is modeled as an equivalent distributed load, and is displayed as blue arrows. These blue arrows can be turned on/off in the Display Options dialog with the Distributed Loads check box under the Stress tab.
