SEISMIC SOIL LIQUEFACTION FOR DETERMINISTIC AND PROBABILISTIC APPROACH BASED ON IN SITU TEST (CPTU) DATA (2015)
<p>One of the most devastating effects of earthquakes in the seismic regions is liquefaction. Many research works have been done in this field and at present different methods are available for the liquefaction potential assessment. The liquefaction is a very ...
Filed under: Earthquake Engineering - LiquefactionReference: World Journal of Engineering and Technology, 2015, 3, 41-49
<p>Estimates of uncertainties and risks of the construction process are<br />essential information for decision-making in infrastructure projects. The construction process is affected by different types of uncertainties. We can distinguish between the common ...

<p>Predicting bearing capacity of shallow foundations is a common practice in geotechnical engineering and an accurate estimation of its value is essential for a safe and reliable design. Traditional deterministic methods of estimating bearing capacity of ...
PROBABILISTIC CHARACTERISTICS OF STRIP FOOTING BEARING CAPACITY EVALUATED BY RANDOM FINITE ELEMENT METHOD (2011)
Pieczynska J. , Pula W. et al.
The Random Finite Element Method has been employed for calculating the random characteristics of bearing capacity of a strip foundation. The study has been carried out for two different soils; a greyblue clay from Taranto in Italy, which is well defined from ...
<p>The design of a shallow foundation with eccentric loading is presented for the ultimate limit state of the bearing resistance, according to the formulation presented in annex D of NP EN 1997-1:2010. Probabilistic and deterministic methods were used. Concerning ...
Kavvadas M. , Karlaftis M. et al.
<p>Deterministic design methods as required by design codes, attempt to account for ground uncertainty by adopting conservative values of ground parameters and relatively large safety factors. This paper performs probabilistic analyses of soil slopes using ...

PROBABILISTIC METHODOLOGY FOR ESTIMATION OF NUMBER AND ECONOMIC LOSS (COST) OF FUTURE LANDSLIDES IN THE SAN FRANCISCO BAY REGION, CALIFORNIA (2008)
The Probabilistic Landslide Assessment Cost Estimation System (PLACES) presented in this report estimates the number and economic loss (cost) of landslides during a specified future time in individual areas, and then calculates the sum of those estimates. ...

Griffiths D.V. , Fenton G. A. et al.
Compares the earth pressure predicted by Rankine's theory with those obtained using a finite element analysis in which the soil is assumed to be spatially random.
