In this thesis, the effects of the foreshore and heterogeneities of the subsoil on the piping safety analysis are determined. The effects are searched for by use of the numerical model D-Geo Flow. The results of this research give more insights in when and how a foreshore has to be included in the safety analysis. It is also concluded that...
