Abstract: An interactive web application has been devel-oped to provide a learning tool for soil mechanics students. Using digital video, html and javascript the interactive video provides some facts and figures about dams in general and embankment dams in particular, using a small scale exper-imental model and finite element numerical simulations to provide insight on groundwater flow phenomena in this type of works. The web application is able to supply further references through social networks in order to stimulate interest and promote deeper learning of embankment dam engineering and related phenomena.
