Abstract—In Viet Nam, conventional types of coastal structures are earthen dikes, and later rubble-mound ones. Recently, Geotube structures and rubble-mound dikes in combination with L-shaped walls on pile foundation have been proposed to use. All the above-mentioned types of sea dikes' foundations behave as shallow or deep ones which is just suitable with hard soil areas. To limit that disadvantage, the paper'authors would like to propose a new structural solution that foundation behaviour is based on both shallow and deep ones. Therefore, it will be more adaptable to the soft soil in comparision to the already known types. 
