Risk assessment and spatial variability in geotechnical stability problems
Reliability analysis has gained considerable popularity in practice and academe as a way of quantifying and managing geotechnical risk in the face of uncertain input parameters. The purpose of this study is to investigate the influence of soil spatial variability on the probability of failure of different geotechnical engineering problems, including block compression, bearing capacity of strip footings, passive and active earth pressure and slope stability problems. The primary methodology will be the Random Finite Element Method (RFEM) which combines finite element analysis with random field ...
