Overview geotechnical model tests on dike safety at Deltares

Author
Organization
Abstract
Three on-going dike safety studies (on: macro stability, piping and flow slides) in the Netherlands make use of geotechnical physical models. A short outline of these projects is presented; the physical models chosen are described and discussed. The three studies use different physical models, depending on the research questions at the beginning of the model test series, the heterogeneity that is anticipated in the field, the scaling laws and the knowledge level. The paper describes why a certain model was chosen.
