Abstract [en]

We first give consideration to the question that Wang, Yang and Ye pose on the distribution of data points in Fig. 4a and 4b of the paper under discussion, because it addresses an informative point that we believe may indeed benefit from a note of clarification. An assessment of the potential for seepage-induced internal instability in, for example, the filter material of a dam usually involves an evaluation of gradation curves obtained from construction records and any subsequent investigations. If more than one empirical method is used for shape analysis of the gradations, then several most-vulnerable curves may be identified from the analyses, owing to the empirical origins of the methods themselves.
