Data and Report from S&T 21071: Furthering Cracked Embankment Erosion Research

The scoping level research summarized in this report is intended to develop further research to directly impact uncertainties within the risk estimation process for the internal erosion failure mode. Specifically, this research targets the events of “Progression: constriction or upstream zone fails to limit flows” and “Progression: No self-healing by upstream zone”. The research presented includes a literature review related to state of the art and state of the practice methods for directly and indirectly informing the events of flows limiting and no self-healing. This report also provides suggested research topics to further understanding of these events and directly inform the risk assessment process.
