A Unified Method for Estimating Probabilities of Failure of Author: Laura Caldeira. Internal erosion is the formation of voids within a soil caused by the removal of material by seepage. It is the second most common cause of failure in levees and one of the leading causes of failures in earth dams, responsible for about half of embankment dam failures.. Internal erosion occurs when the hydraulic forces exerted by water seeping through the pores and cracks of the material in.

According to the failure cases and distresses of embankment dams associated with internal erosion incidents, internal erosion has historically resulted in about 37% embankment dam failures.

Therefore, it is crucial to gain fundamental understandings of the triggering mechanism and process of internal erosion. The internal erosion process can be divided into four phases: initiation, continuation. Internal erosion causes about half of all failures of water-retaining earth embankment dams.

Similar statistics apply to levees. Internal erosion occurs when the hydraulic loads imposed by water seeping through the pores or flowing through cracks and openings in the soils in embankments and their foundations generate erosive forces sufficient to overcome the resistance to erosion of those soils.
