A Light in the Deep: The Future of Offshore Site Investigations
For deep-water energy developments, hazard identification and risk assessments (that is, assessing the probability of occurrence along with the consequences of failure) are more important...

Geotechnical Reliability – Ten Unresolved Problems
Geotechnical engineering deals with a world in which assured solutions seldom apply, and in which the famed early practitioners spoke proudly of accommodating uncertainty and judgment....

A Probabilistic Approach to Karstic Foundation Variability
Karst is a landscape formed in soluble rocks caused by movement of water that has become slightly acidic. Limestone, dolomite, and gypsum are vulnerable to these influences and may be...

Probabilistic Analysis of Long-Term Aquifer Recharge
Long-term time series of aquifer recharge and other aquifer fluxes (aquifer discharge, groundwater extraction) are essential to monitor and understand aquifer processes. This paper presents...

Long-Term Wave Probabilities Based on Hindcasting of Severe Storms

A Probabilistic Investigation of Foundation Design for Offshore Gravity Structures

Probabilistic Fatigue Analysis of Fixed Offshore Structures

A Decision Support System for Drought Management Planning
Traditional drought management planning has focused on curtailment of demand by instituting voluntary or mandatory restrictions on water consumption when regional hydroclimatic indicators...

Degrees of Belief
Subjective Probability and Engineering Judgment
Degrees of Belief artfully weaves together three elements at the very core of engineering: uncertainties in knowledge, inductive reasoning,...

Uncertainty in Probabilistic Seismic Hazard Analysis

A Framework for Performance-Based Seismic Design
The following probabilistic framework for seismic performance assessment is presented as an effective foundation for the development of performance-based guidelines. It suggests a generic...

New Parameters to Model Ground Motions
The paper presents three new parameters to characterize earthquake-induced ground motions. All three parameters evolve from the concept of response spectra, and are termed 3D response...

Seismic Analysis and Retrofit of the Amoskeag Bridges
In 1983 AASHTO first offered the design guide for seismic analysis of bridges, which ultimately became a permanent part of the AASHTO Bridge Design Manual in 1990. Prior to this time,...

Predicting Droughts for the South Platte River System
In this paper we apply probability theory and stochastic processes to determine drought properties, particularly drought duration. Spccilicslly, we model the sequences of wet and dry years...
