Dikes and levees protect the land from flooding by retaining high water levels. However, water penetrating the dike and the subsoil during high water periods reduces the strength of the dike due to the increase in pore pressure. This report presents a numerical model for solving Biot's problem that considers pore water pressures and displacement of the soil.
