A novel laboratory device is presented, in which the process of backward erosion piping is observed in cylindrical sand samples oriented horizontally. The cylindrical shape of the testing device constrained the location of the erosion path to the top of the sample, thereby allowing pore pressure measurements to be made in both the eroded pipe...

A design scheme is proposed to evaluate the safety of continuous linear structure i.e. river levee. The scheme is developed to establish a procedure to continuously evaluate the stability failure of embankment during flood runoff by seepage, and to identify locations for reinforcement of river levee. A 20km stretch of a fairly large river...

The traditional Dutch way to deal with piping failure in river dikes is the implementation of piping berms. The disadvantage of such a measure is the required inland space. Relief wells, on the other hand, require less or no inland space representing an attractive alternative solution. The aims of this paper are first, to show how reliability...

The ministry of land, infrastructures, transportation and tourism (MLIT) of the Japanese government maintains governmental managed river levee for the safety against flood whose total length is more than 10,000 km. The design standard of river levee had been traditionally done based on so called shape based specification, where levee is judged...

Piping failure of levees is one of the main contributors to flood risk. Piping occurs when the head difference over a levee results in uplift of the inland blanket, followed by backward erosion in the aquifer due to high local flow velocities. Whether piping occurs, highly depends on local geo-hydrological circumstances which are uncertain due...

The U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center (ERDC) is conducting research to investigate internal erosion, specifically backward erosion piping, by use of laboratory-scale model testing to understand and properly capture the physics of the problem. Preliminary results show that lower void ratio models, using poorly-graded soils with a...

Research to the failure mechanism piping (internal, backward erosion) in the Netherlands shows that the dikes require costly berms to meet the required safety standards. According to the Sellmeijer piping-formula, the d70 (70%-quantile of the grain size distribution by weight) is an important parameter in the resistance against piping. Therefore...

Piping is one of the possible failure mechanism for dams and levees with a sandy foundation. Water flowing through the foundation causes the onset of grain transport, due to which shallow pipes are formed at the interface of the sandy layer and an impermeable blanket layer. In the past, the mechanism has been investigated predominantly in...

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...
