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...

The introduction of the new 'Waterwet' led to the retesting of a lot of primary flood defences within the Netherlands, sequentially certifying a lot of levees as unsafe regarding inner slope stability. To test or design a levee an adequate amount of soil investigation is required to indicate the presence of different soil types, stratification...

The Houston Metropolitan area is a hurricane prone area and vulnerable to flooding by large storm surges caused by these extreme storm events. The area is a major economic center in the State of Texas and even the whole United States. Protection of the area against flooding is extremely necessary to protect the economy, community and environment...

The Wave Overtopping Simulator was developed in 2006 and destructive tests have been performed in February and March of 2007, 2008 and 2009 and will probably be continued in 2010. The tests show the behaviour of various inner slopes of dikes, embankments or levees under simulation of wave overtopping, up to a mean overtopping discharge of 125 l...

Nowadays the protection of our country for high sea levels and heavy storms is daily news. The ComCoast project (COMbined functions in the COASTal defence zones) is originated by ten organisations out of five European countries bordering the North Sea coasts in order to develop innovative solutions for flood protection in coastal areas. Instead...

An important element in the ComCoast concept is the overtopable sea defence, often a dike.The landward (inner) slope of the dike is adjusted in such a way that it can withstand higher overtopping rates. One of the concepts to improve the resistance is the "Sandy Dike", a cover of the inner slope with layer sand. The sand will be washed away...

The present proposal deals with a presentation of three potentially feasible concepts for strengthening of the sea defences as to allow for increased wave overtopping, within the framework of ComCoast. In addition, for each concept an indicative proposal is given for a further theoretical study (Phase 2) and an indicative approach is shown for...

An important element in the ComCoast concept is the overtopable sea defence (often a dike). In this concept the landward (inner) slope of the dike is adjusted in such a way that it can withstand higher overtopping rates. Two new concepts for covering the inner slope, sand cover and perforated mats, are discrebed in this report.

Medium height breakwaters are subjected to a considerable amount of overtopping. This implies the armour on the inner slope has to stable against overtopping waves. Existing equations do lack some basic understanding of the process of starting up movement of rock on the inner slopes. In case one relates the stability of the blocks on the inner...

Medium height breakwaters are subjected to a considerable amount of overtopping. This implies the armour on the inner slope has to stable against overtopping waves. Existing equations do lack some basic understanding of the process of starting up movement of rock on the inner slopes. In order to get more insight into this phenomenon a special...

Hoe evenwichtsverlies bij golfoverslag ontstaat en welke krachten daarbij een rol spelen is onduidelijk. In dit rapport is onderzocht hoe groot de wrijvingskrachten op het binnentalud van een dijk zijn ten gevolge van het overslaande water. Omdat dit probleem niet toegankelijk is voor berekening, zijn een aantal proeven gedaan. Hiertoe is een...
