The safety of the Dutch dikes depends on various failure mechanisms. Macro stability, a geotechnical failure mechanism, is highly affected by differences in soil strength because the sliding plane propagates through areas of least resistance. The variations in soil properties in space, also known as spatial<br/>variability, are caused by...

The study delves into the crucial role of undrained shear strength in the stability of civil engineering projects involving soft soils. It explores the enhancement of this strength through (pre)loading in conjunction with Prefabricated Vertical Drains (PVDs). The Stress History and Normalized Soil Engineering Properties (SHANSEP) framework is...

The Netherlands is inherently challenged by water, as a large part of the country lies below sea level and several major rivers in North-western Europe cross the country. The most prevalent form of protection from coastal and river floods in the Netherlands includes approximately 22,000 km of earthen dikes, of which 3800 km are primary flood...

The Dutch Water board revised their guidelines for the safety assessment of dikes in 2017. A major change for the assessment of macro-stability is the use of the SHANSEP method to estimate the strength of impermeable cohesive layers. The failure probabilities are estimated with a deterministic analysis using limit equilibrium methods. The use of...

Dikes protect people and lands all around the globe. With rising sea levels, the importance of well-designed dikes has never been more essential. One of the main factors that can compromise the stability of dikes are macro-instabilities. Macro-instabilities can cause dikes to lose their water bearing potential, leading to floods. Methods are...

This thesis tried to quantify the strength reduction of the soft soil layers of the experiment through a back analysis of the failure of the dyke without sheet pile wall. Residual strength hypothesis were formulated based on a literature study and the current design norm of dyke design on soft soil layers in the Netherlands. A Limit Equilibrium...

In this study, the assessment of the KIJK dike follows the new guidelines given by POV-M 2018 using PLAXIS. The macrostability assessment and design of the dike is examined for two cases. In the first case the dike is assessed based on the in-situ conditions (Green dike) whereas in the second case a cantilever sheet pile wall is used in the...
