An accurate knowledge of seepage flows through embankments is necessary for the stability analysis and drainage computation. In this paper, a particle-based MPM model with two sets of material points is used to study the phenomenon. Before simulating the seepage flow through an embankment, the proposed numerical model is first applied to a flow through porous dam problem as model validation. Subsequently, the numerical method is employed to simulate the seepage flow through an embankment with different permeability. Taking the analytical solution under the Dupuit's approximation as the reference, the MPM model gives good predictions of the shape of the seepage water table.
