Risk-based and probabilistic reliability design methods are starting to be integrated into the daily geotechnical engineering practice, as shown by the current draft of EN1997 (Eurocode 7), which explicitly allows Reliability-based verification of limit states. The semi-probabilistic design methods in EN1997 are a compromise between ease of use...

In the planning stage of new infrastructure or when designing renovation of existing infrastructure, information about existing slope movements or settlements is essential to make informed design decisions. Interferometric<br/>Synthetic Aperture Radar (InSAR) techniques can be of value to identify these risks in an early stage of a project....

A case study involving the assessment and re-design of an existing dyke, founded on a layered soil, has compared deterministic analysis based on 5-percentile property values and a reliability-based random finite element analysis consistent with the requirements of Eurocode 7. The results show that a consideration of the spatial nature of soil...

State of the art geotechnical engineering and project designare nowadays rigidly connected to the mindful adaption of the Eurocode. However, questions can be raised on the critical selection of the characteristic values for parameters such as the soil compressibility and permeability. The experiment conducted at Leendert de Boerspolder, where a...

Displacement-based finite element calculations are primarily used for serviceability limit state (SLS) analysis, but the finite element method also offers possibilities for ultimate limit state (ULS) design in geotechnical engineering. The combined use of SLS and ULS calculations with partial safety factors according to the different design...

In the Netherlands research has been performed on the Observational Method, aiming at a wider use of the method in the design of underground and infrastructural construction works. This paper summarizes the guideline that was output of the research, providing a clear definition, an overview of obstacles and pre-conditions, practical...

With the prescence of Eurocode 7 standards the reliability-based design appeared and it is still spreading in geotechnics. In geotechnical design it is essential that we know the physical parameters of the soils as accurately and safely as possible. Therefore experiments and series of experiments are carried out and characteristic values are...

This paper focuses on the derivation of design prop loads for supported excavations in stiff clay with increasing excavation depth and number of prop levels. For multi-propped walls there are a number of empirical graphs to obtain the design prop forces. CIRIA C517 (Twine & Roscoe, 1999) enhancing Terzaghi & Peck's work (Terzaghi & Peck (1967)...

Low, B.K. (author)
Spatial autocorrelation arises in geological material by virtue of its formation by natural processes acting over long geologic time (millions of years). This endows geomaterial with some unique statistical features (e.g. spatial variability) not commonly found in structural material manufactured under strict quality control. For example, by the...

In this paper, the reliability assessment of the bearing capacity of a shallow strip footing was conducted using a reliability index β. In applicable standards (Eurocode 7) there is not presented any explicit method of an evaluation of characteristic values of soil parameters. Therefore some approaches of an estimation of characteristic values...
