Vermeer, Jort (author)
The Random Finite Element Method (RFEM) is a robust stochastic method for slope reliability analysis that incorporates the spatial variability of soil properties. However, the extensive computational time associated with the direct Monte Carlo simulation limits its practical application. To overcome this problem, this study investigates the use...

After overtopping, the most common failure mechanism in the world that leads to a dike breach is the instability of the inner slope. Two stability calculations are required for the semi-probabilistic assessment of inner slope stability. One calculation is without significant overtopping and the other calculation is with significant overtopping...

This thesis discusses the characterization of the undrained shear strength, S_u from the net cone resistance, q_net of clay in Dutch sites using Hierarchical Bayesian Modelling (HBM). The performance of the HBM is compared with the current practice methods of the site characterization which propose either the use of only site–specific...

To protect embankments along German inland waterways against local slope sliding failure caused by ship-induced water level drawdown, they are mainly secured by bank revetments. Often, large embankment sections are designed on the basis of a limited number of field and laboratory tests. Thus, uncertainties arise with regard to the mechanical and...

Slope stability formulae for rubble mound structures are usually developed for head-on conditions. Often, the effects of oblique waves are neglected, mainly because it is assumed that for oblique wave attack, the reduction in damage compared to perpendicular wave attack is insignificant. When the incident waves are oblique, the required...

Different data assimilation schemes such as the ensemble Kalman filter (EnKF), ensemble smoother (ES) and ensemble smoother with multiple data assimilation (ESMDA) are implemented in a hydro-mechanical slope stability analysis. For a synthetic case, these schemes assimilate displacements at the crest and the slope to estimate strength and...

Data assimilation methods have been implemented on a slope stability problem, and the performance of different constitutive models and data assimilation schemes has been investigated. In the first part, a data assimilation scheme called the ensemble Kalman filter (EnKF) is implemented using a finite element model (FEM) and its performance with...

Physically-based hydrological-geotechnical modeling at large scales is difficult, especially due to the time-consuming nature of flow routing and 3D soil stability models. Although parallelization techniques are commonly used for each model individually, there is currently no concurrent parallelization strategy for both. This study proposed...

Dikes are crucial for the protection against floods. One of the ways in which dikes can fail is by the instability of the inner slope. Credible probabilities of failure for slope stability are essential for the safety assessment of existing dikes and the design of dike reinforcements. This dissertation focuses on improving failure probability...

Vibratory installation of piles and casings can be extremely economical, therefore the contractors prefer pile driving. When compared to impact pile driving, vibratory pile driving generates less noise but this installation method is still fraught with uncertainties (Rausche 2003). Environmental effects (such as ground vibrations) have negative...

Climatic conditions in uence peak discharges in rivers and change sea levels; therefore, attention to the safety of dikes is of ever growing importance. Macro instability is one of the dike failure mechanisms that can inundate the hinterland. Soil heterogeneity plays an important role in assessing dike safety, especially for slope stability,...

This paper investigates the influence of three forms of uncertainty on the probabilistic stability of an idealised 3D embankment slope. These are: 1D spatial variability in the external geometry of the slope along its length, 2D spatial variability in the depth of the boundary between the embankment material and the foundation layer, and 3D...

In the past few decades, the use of Bayes' theorem in geotechnical engineering has increased significantly. A good amount of work is done on implementing this theorem for improving the knowledge on soil properties, identification of soil strata, and quantifying different uncertainties involved in predicting soil properties. However, the results...

Large areas of the Netherlands are below the sea level, and a network of primary and secondary (regional) dikes protect these areas from inundation. Regular assessments and monitoring are implemented with the intention of ensuring the safety of the protected areas. However these assessments usually ignore that these dikes are subject to various...

Landslides pose a risks to the communities settled in their vicinity. They pose a threat to human lives and significant economical damage to the affected communities. As the scientific community agrees that the climate change will further increase the risks associated with landslides, it is important to develop a reliable, cost effective and...

Nguyen, Thy Anh (author)
A new approach is proposed which uses concepts of both the limit equilibrium method (LEM) and finite element method (FEM) to analyse slope stability. The main limitation of the LEM is that it can give an incorrect display of the initial stresses. The FEM is able to overcome this limitation, however, it uses the shear strength reduction method ...

Soil properties are spatially variable due to the natural deposition process. Because of this inherent spatial variability, a slope can actually fail along any potential slip surface. A single value of Factor of safety cannot account for this variation dominated the slope stability problem. Probabilistic analysis considering the spatial...

Kentrop, Daniël (author)
The construction of a dike improvement often causes a decrease in reliability during construction. Raising a dike may give rise to excess pore water pressures in the subsoil, resulting in a temporal strength decrease. Observing the survival of such a loading condition might provide information on the strength of a dike. Therefore, this research...

Climatic conditions and vegetation cover influence water flux in a dike, and potentially the dike stability. A comprehensive numerical simulation is computationally too expensive to be used for the near real-time analysis of a dike network. Therefore, this study investigates a random forest (RF) regressor to build a data-driven surrogate for a...

During construction of a dike, slope stability often reaches critical levels, due to the excess pore water pressures in the foundation. The loading condition during construction has similarities with the design conditions during flood loading. Not only in terms of the pore water pressures as the main driving force, but also in terms of...
