One of the failure mechanisms of a dike is piping. A water level difference between the two sides of a dike causes a groundwater flow in the sand layer under the (clay)dike. This flow can transport sand from under the dike to the exit point of the groundwater flow. The formula of Sellmeijer is derived mathematically from the equation of...

Unexpected failure of subaqueous excavated slopes in the form of flow slides is considered in this graduate study. Excavated slopes are not the same as slopes constructed by means of hydraulic fill. Several recent flow slide failures in sand borrow pits, together with qualms in engineering practice about not knowing exactly what fundamental...
