Pore water pressure uncertainties for slope stability : memo
M.G. van der Krogt
Publication type | rapport Deltares
Pore water pressures (pwp) can have a significant impact on the inner slope stability of dikes (STBI). Ignoring uncertainties in pore water pressures can thus lead to a serious over or under estimation of slope stability. There are two projects for which the pwp uncertainties currently are of major importance: Reliability Updating using Past Performance (RUPP) and calibration of safety factors for slope stability. The goal of this memo is to describe the general implementation of pore water pressure uncertainties and the specific implications for RUPP and Calibration.
