There is a crucial need to improve our understanding of the potential threats of extreme events, such as the ongoing California drought, on critical geotechnical infrastructure and take subsequent actions in a timely manner to adapt our infrastructure. The need is more pronounced for levees because their functionality to protect limited water resources and(More)
This study aims to quantitatively assess the impact of extreme precipitation events under current and future climate scenarios on landslides. Rainfall-triggered landslides are analyzed primarily using extreme precipitation estimates, derived using the so-called stationary assumption (i.e., statistics of extreme events will not vary significantly over a long(More)

Climate change is expected to alter statistics of extreme events in the future. Adapting geotechnical infrastructure to a changing climate necessitates quantitative assessment of the potential climate change impacts on the performance of infrastructure. This study numerically investigates the hydromechanical response of a mechanically stabilized earth (MSE)(More)
