By modeling soil as a three-dimensional spatially random medium, the reliability of shallow foundations against serviceability limit state failure, in the form of excessive settlement and/or differential settlement, can be estimated. The soil’s elastic modulus, E , is represented as a lognormally distributed random field with an isotropic correlation structure. The settlements of individual and pairs of square footings placed on the surface of the soil are computed using the finite element… Expand
