Dams and dikes are both water-retaining earth embankments. These are vulnerable to internal erosion but specific differences lead to varying vulnerabilities to different types of internal erosion: • Dams are usually zoned, with potential filtering capability to arrest piping if it is initiated, while dikes are more commonly unzoned and incapable...

Traditionally Dutch design codes require a minimum distance between a pipeline and the toe of the levee: the ‘safety zone’. The codes provide additional design and maintenance requirements for pipeline sections located within this ‘safety zone’. For existing pipelines, designed before the establishment of the codes, the sections located in the...

This paper presents and overview of advances in flood risk and levee reliability analysis in the Netherlands. It is described how new safety standards – in the form of a target failure probability – have been derived on the basis of nationwide flood risk assessments which taken into account both economic risk and risk to life. The process for...

Destructive wave overtopping tests have been performed at more than 20 dike sections in the Netherlands using the Wave Overtopping Simulator to simulate the overtopping waves. The tests show the combined behaviour of turf and substrate up to mean wave overtopping discharges of 75 ?/s per m, meaning wave volumes up to 5,500 ?/m with flow...

Wave overtopping discharges at coastal structures are well described in the EurOtop Manual (2007), including the distribution of overtopping wave volumes. Each volume that overtops a dike or levee will have a certain flow velocity and depth record in time, often given by the maximum velocity and flow depth. This paper describes some further...

This report is a compilation of facts and information that summarizes the present state of knowledge related to wave attack on the flood side of earthen levees. Particular emphasis was placed on the need for providing flood-side armoring (beyond the protection afforded by grass) for the New Orleans Hurricane & Storm Damage Risk Reduction System ...

Old dikes are usually still constructed entirely from clay and since 1953 many much heavier dikes have been made from a core of sand with a covering. This construction puts heavier requirements on the covering, as it also does for grassland on a clay layer. These and other developments have led to the need for more insight into the strength of...
