Probabilistic slope stability analysis by finite elements
In this paper we investigate the probability of failure of a cohesive slope using both simple and more advanced probabilistic analysis tools. The influence of local averaging on the probability ofExpand

Simulation of random fields via local average subdivision
A fast and accurate method of generating realizations of a homogeneous Gaussian scalar random process in one, two, or three dimensions is presented. The resulting discrete process represents localExpand

Bearing-capacity prediction of spatially random c ϕ soils
Soils with spatially varying shear strengths are modeled using random field theory and elasto-plastic finite element analysis to evaluate the extent to which spatial variability and cross-correlationExpand

Random Field Modeling of CPT Data
An extensive set of cone penetration tests (CPT) soundings are analyzed statistically to produce an \Ia priori\N 1D stochastic soil model for use at other similar sites. The data were collected byExpand

Estimation for Stochastic Soil Models
Although considerable theory exists for the probabilistic treatment of soils, the ability to identify the nature of spatial stochastic soil variation is almost nonexistent. We all know that we couldExpand

Influence of spatial variability on slope reliability using 2-D random fields.
The paper investigates the probability of failure of slopes using both traditional and more advanced probabilistic analysis tools. The advanced method, called the random finite-element method, usesExpand

Probabilistic Foundation Settlement on Spatially Random Soil
By modeling soils as spatially random media, estimates of the reliability of foundations against serviceability limit state failure, in the form of excessive differential settlements, can be made.Expand
