Toelichting (Engels) Thousands of kilometres of dikes cover the Dutch coastline and river shores, in order to protect the densely populated (hinter)land from high tide and floods. As a consequence of economic and demographic development, but also climate change, the safety and design standards of a flood defence need to be updated every fifty years or so. Macro-instability, which is the loss of structural integrity due to high water, is one of the significant failure mechanisms a dike must be evaluated for. For this research a case study is assessed by means of a 2-D LEM (Limit Equilibrium Methods) model (i.e. D-Stability): for sixteen schematised dike sections that are part of the river dike between Wijk bij Duurstede and Amerongen (WAM) this programme is used to determine a stability factor.
