Abstract

Traditionally granular filters were used. In the last decades they have been progressively replaced by geotextile filters. For their design there are several methods available in the literature, however, as many of them result from the experience with implementation of geotextile filters under specific conditions, their application should be done with care. A numerical tool was developed to assist in the designing of filters, for both granular and geotextile solutions. This tool includes a list of methods useful for the designer of a filter, and thus, was developed to give the user information about the validity of the conditions for applying the methods in question. It includes a comparison and summary of the design results obtained from different methods, allowing their comparison. The numerical tool has been tested and validated using examples from literature and is working well and can be a good aid for the project of filters, therefore, a valid approach to save time and additional expenses.
