Final draft of the Failure Paths report

This Failure Paths Report collects experiences of dike and levee failures, discusses different failed cases and summarises these experiences in failure paths that can generally be used in forensic engineering, design and maintenance of dikes and levees for different loa

Discussion on the state of the art and developing the science and engineering in order to increase fundamental understanding and modelling of strength, deformation and erosion behaviour of soils and failure processes of water retaining structures like dikes, dunes, (underwater) dams. The gained fundamental understanding is essential for designing and building dikes that can easily be adapted to new insights on design loads and strength. Especially or urban areas, with limited space and large number of lives and economic value to protect, the design of water retaining structures faces serious challenges. For these conditions hard elements, like sheet pile walls or semi hard elements, like soil mixing techniques are required to construct water retaining structures that fulfil the design criteria. This opens a new discussion on soil – structure interaction at extreme loading conditions.

Contributions to the international congresses of the society to increase the quality of design by including experience, such as professional engineering, large scale tests, case histories, failures, measurements, simulations and artificial knowledge. For future events TC201 will organize a workshop in Mexico (Pan American conference, 2019) and contribute to the ECSMGE Reykjavik 2019.

Encouraging international collaboration of experts in multidisciplinary developments of new techniques for constructing and maintaining safe and reliable protection works.

Producing technical reports and encouraging international trainings, workshops and meetings in this research field and exchange experience and ideas on improving communication to other researchers, public and politics for more alertness and awareness.
