Part of the International Series of Numerical Mathematics / Internationale Schriftenreihe zur Numerischen Mathematik / Série Internationale d’Analyse Numérique book series (ISNM, volume 99)


The paper deals with a free boundary problem of a system of earth dams systems with unknown intermediate water levels and separated-variable filtration coefficients. Explicit formulas for the intermediate water levels and an approximate solution by the finite element method are given for the considered problem.
