In this study, we provide a comparison to the applied methods for the sliding process in the reliability analysis of the pilot site Scheldt. These methods are based on Bishop technique benefiting the random field theory (Vanmarcke 1983). The finite element method is used as a benchmark to evaluate the outcome of the Bishop method integrated with the random field theory which takes into account variation of soil parameters. Since the sliding process is a key issue in the safety assessment of dike rings, this comparison is an important issue.
