This paper presents a 3-D seepage analysis case study of the Soork Dam in Iran. For this study geotechnical information of the site was collected in two phases. Then the condition of the ground waters characteristics and the seepage through the foundation of the dam was modeled. In this way, numerical simulation was attempted by employing Seep/W, and Seep 3D software. This study shows the results of numerical simulations thus providing seepage measures.
