### NON-DARCIAN SEEPAGE STABILITY ANALYSIS OF NON-NEWTONIAN FLUID

**ABSTRACT**

In this paper, the two-phase fluid composed of fine geologic particles and water is considered to be a non-Newtonian fluid, and the seepage dynamics model of the two-phase medium in the rock-soil structure is constructed. Based on the hypothesis, the boundary conditions and solving methods of the model are given and the critical conditions of the model instability are also discussed in detail. It is shown that the existence of the equilibrium state of the kinetic model is determined by the power exponent, the effective fluidity and the non-Darcian flow factor.
