Toelichting (Engels) To reduce the flood risk of the Netherlands, the national standard was updated. Due to this 1100 km of levees need to be reinforced by 2028. Including a sheet pile wall in a levee permits to build higher, less wide levees, thus increasing the macro-stability. They can therefore be a design solution for urbanised ares. The Eemdijk experiment was setup to gain more insights into the pre and post failure strength of a dyke with sheet pile wall. During this experiment two full scale dykes were brought to failure, one with a sheet pile wall built in and one without. The water turning capacity of a dyke with sheet pile wall is dependent on the strength of soils after a large amount of strain has been mobilized. This is known as the residual strength. During laboratory testing on the subsurface clay layers of the experiment, the residual strength measured was not in accordance with what could be expected fromthe literature. This raises the question whether the Dutch organic clays behave differently as the predominantly mineral clays described in the literature, or whether the testing methods proved inadequate for themeasurement of residual strength of organic clays. This thesis tried to quantify the strength reduction of the soft soil layers of the experiment through a back analysis of the failure of the dyke without sheet pile wall.

To support researchers to publish their research Open Access, deals have been negotiated with various publishers. Depending on the deal, a discount is provided for the author on the Article Processing Charges that need to be paid by the author to publish an article Open Access. A discount of 100% means that (after approval) the author does not have to pay Article Processing Charges.

For the approval of an Open Access deal for an article, the corresponding author of this article must be affiliated with Wageningen University & Research.
