Breach due to overtopping is the most common failure mode of earthen levees. Historic records and future projections consistently show exacerbating patterns in the frequency and severity of floods in several regions, which can increase the probability of levee overtopping. The main objective of this study is twofold: (1) to present a comprehensive...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Breach due to overtopping is the most prevalent failure mode of levees; therefore, special consideration should be given to this mechanism when conducting levee risk assessments. The main objective of this study is to apply a recently developed logistic regression model, which estimates the probability of breach due to overtopping, to levee risk as...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
The most common mode of levee failure, breach due to overtopping, is generally considered as a function of a complex set of hydraulic and geotechnical factors. The US Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) actively tracks and compiles data related to such events across the United States within their portfolio of levee systems. Recent experience suggests t...
