Three on-going dike safety studies (on: macro stability, piping and flow slides) in the Netherlands make use of geotechnical physical models. A short outline of these projects is presented; the physical models chosen are described and discussed. The three studies use different physical models, depending on the research questions at the beginning...

Doel van het SBW piping project is het identificeren van onzekerheden binnen de huidige piping toetsingsregels en deze eventueel te verkleinen of elimineren. Het programma is gestart met kleine schaalproeven om invloeden van verschillende zandkarakteristieken te bestuderen. Uit deze proeven volgt de invloed van de verschillende...
