Abstract

The exploration of possible failure mechanisms of levees located in southernTaiwanwas focused. Two levees including Chiuliao 1st Levee and Gueishan Levee along Laonong River were chosen as the cases for analyzing possible failure mechanisms. For Chiuliao 1st Levee, the levee might fail under slope failure and sliding failure of retaining wall. For Gueishan Levee, overturning failure of the retaining wall could control the stability of the levee. With greater scouring depths the above levees could reach failure with moderate water level, although the failure mechanisms were different.
