This paper reports some numerical investigation carried out on hydraulic fills. A methodology based on the numerical solution of the governing equation via the finite volume method is introduced and tested, and proven to be very efficient. Typical dimensional performance curves are obtained and the influence of governing parameters is discussed. A sensitivity analysis is carried out in order to characterize the influence of the numerous parameters used to simulate the time dependent settlement in hydraulic fills on the outputs of the model.
