Influencing Factors Analysis for Failure Risk of Upstream Revetment of Existing Levees
According to risk analysis theory, a model of analysis for failure risk of upstream revetment of existing levees is proposed in this paper. Based on the model, the load effect and generalized resistance for the failure risk of upstream revetment of existing levees are analyzed, and then the influencing factors of the failure risk of upstream revetment are studied. The calculation results show that the proposed model is workable and effective for analysis of the failure risk of upstream revetment of existing levees, and the main factors influencing failure risk of existing upstream revetment are the randomness of the existing effective thickness of upstream revetment and ratio mean of upstream slope of the existing levees.
