The effect of probability distributions on the slope reliability is highlighted in this study since the lognormal distribution is often used to characterize the variability of soil properties to avoid negative values. A multiple response-surface based MCS method for slope reliability analysis in spatially variable soils is proposed. A...

A full geotechnical risk analysis includes site investigation, model simplification and analysis. The site characterization forms the basis for the choice of the soil parameters used in the subsequent analysis, but the soil data is normally analyzed with crude methods that do not include the effect of the soil variability. A case study is here...

Due to the increasingly number of elder and deteriorating structures, maintenance is becoming a serious and more complex problem in most of the countries. A lot of studies have been carried out in this area for years. However, the fact that a lot of parameters show spatial random variability, which is linked with dependencies on temperature, w/c...

Natural soil is one of the most variable materials as a result of physical and chemical changes. The variation in soil properties significantly affects the failure mechanism and bearing capacity of a footing. This effect is further complicated by considering the spatial correlation of the soil properties. The purpose of this study is to...
