TC201 Dykes and Levees

Geotechnical Aspects of Dykes and Levees and Shore Protection

Discussion state of the art and developing the science and engineering in order to increase fundamental understanding and modeling of strength, deformation and erosion behaviour of soils and failure processes of dikes, dunes and (underwater) dams in river and coastal zone.

Producing technical reports and encouraging international training 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.


Contributions to the international congresses of the society to increase the quality of design by including experience, such as large scale tests, case histories, failures, measurements, simulations and artificial knowledge .


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