Beschreibung

Risk and reliability analysis is an area of growing importance in geotechnical engineering, where many variables have to be considered. This volume is a comprehensive examination of the role of risk and reliability in geotechnical engineering research.

Klappentext
Probabilistic reasoning, statistical methods, and measures of engineering judgment are combined to develop a quantified approach for analyzing and managing risks in civil engineering systems and the applied earth sciences. The resulting risk analysis approach described in this book reflects an emerging trend in geotechnical engineering, natural hazards mitigation, infrastructure protection, and other civil engineering fields to directly and quantitatively deal with uncertainty. Reliability and Statistics in Geotechnical Engineering offers a much needed state-of-the-art reference for risk analysis in geotechnical engineering and geology. Integrating theory and practical applications, this book: * Discusses the nature and philosophy of uncertainty in geological and geotechnical engineering. * Addresses fundamentals and limits of probabilistic and statistical methods in the geological and geotechnical context. * Develops statistical approaches to site characaterization decisions and for analyzing field and laboratory data. * Explains traditional and emerging risk analysis methodologies and provides guidance for their use. * Presents many applications of statistics, reliability, and risk techniques to practical problems. Emphasizing both theoretical underpinnings and practical applications, this comprehensive text constitutes an invaluable reference for practising geotechnical engineers, geologists, university students, and civil engineers in general practice.

Zusammenfassung
Risikoanalyse und Zuverlässigkeitsstudien sind in Theorie und Praxis der Geotechnik von wachsender Bedeutung. Jetzt endlich gibt es auch ein Buch, das sich ausführlich mit diesem Thema beschäftigt und das sich mit Sicherheit einen Platz in geotechnischen Studiengängen und in der Praxis erobern wird. Abgehandelt werden hier auch Themen, zu denen man ansonsten nur spärliche Informationen findet, wie die räumliche Variabilität und stochastische Eigenschaften geologischer Materialien.
