Abstract: A detailed analysis of failure modes for seadikes has been performed and was used to derive a complete set of limit state equations for the description of failure scenarios of seadikes. These models and scenarios were then used to calculate the respective failure probabilities and the overall failure probability by a fault tree approach. A simple example of a non-existing seadike was used to illustrate the procedure. Details of parameters, model uncertainties and their influences on the results as well as further information required for the aforementioned procedure are also discussed
