Understanding the behavior of working conditions of the embankment structural system on reinforced concrete pile foundations is very important in design, construction, operation exploitation, and use. This study assessed the adaptive performance of the Hau River landslide protection embankment in regard to climate change scenarios, specifically the impacts of more extraordinary groundwater table drawdown conditions including pressure waves. The study uses Plaxis 2D V.22 software to simulate and calculate the safety factor of the stability of landslide protection embankment on the right bank of Hau River in the area of Binh Duc Ward, Long Xuyen City, An Giang Province. Simulation. The research results on the effectiveness of shore protection works by the seawall system show that the impact of rising water levels as forecasted by climate change projections (+2.8m elevation) is still within the safe limits. Besides, the dangerous scenario of lowering water levels from the design elevation of -1.0 m (Msf = 1.114) down to the climate change water level of -1.5m elevation (Msf = 1.113)) affecting the protected shoreline also has a minor influence on the stability of the structure. Moreover, the impact of waves on the protection works, which is negligible, is also reduced by the shore protection seawall.
