To protect the Netherlands better from flooding, and with an eye on sea-level rise in the rest of the world, more accurate assessments are needed for dykes. The calculation for the most occurring failure mechanism in dykes, i.e. macro-instability, is limited by not being able to calculate large deformation when sliding occurs within a dyke. The...

The material point method (MPM) is used to model both rotational and horizontal sliding failure mechanisms of dykes under external (water) loading. To model the different failure mechanisms, an external hydrostatic water pressure has been applied on the canal side of the dyke by applying a newly developed boundary condition. The boundary...
