You Designed It for the Big One, Right?
Illustrating and Communicating Uncertainty in a Deterministic Seismic Hazard Analysis
In seismic regions of the U.S. and worldwide, engineers design structures to withstand seismic ground motions resulting from a large, rare earthquake. But definitions of "large" and "rare" depend on who...

Introduction
The purpose of this white paper is to: foster understanding and transparency of analytical methods necessary to update and describe climate, including possible changes in the frequency...

Incorporating Climate Science into Engineering Practice
This section provides a review of engineering practices and discusses how engineers canconsider climate change in their practice, given the uncertainty of the future....

Uncertainty, Reliability, and Foundation Engineering: The 5th Peter Lumb Lecture

Uncertainties in Evaluating Mine Subsidence

Maximum Weighted Log-Likelihood Estimation for Parameterization Selection Uncertainty
Hydraulic conductivity identification remains a challenging inverse problem in groundwater modeling because of inherent non-uniqueness and lack of flexibility in parameterization methods....

Groundwater Transport Modeling Using Fuzzy Sets and Fuzzy Logic
Modeling of groundwater flow and transport is inherently uncertain. The predictive capability of the model depends upon both the quantity and quality of hydrogeologic data. The introduction...

Remediation System Optimization with Alternatives
This work applies the enhanced multi-objective robust genetic algorithm (EMRGA) (Beckford and Chan Hilton, 2004) to Fort Ord's Site OU2 for optimal groundwater remediation under uncertainty....

Stochastic Conditional Simulation of Berea Sandstone Geophysical Properties with a Counterpropagation Neural Network
The ability of a counterpropagation neural network to produce stochastic conditional simulations is applied and evaluated on a real dataset. This network functions as a nonparametric clustering...

Fundamentals of Risk Assessment
Risk, expressed in terms of potential human sufferings and economic losses, is very real and its significance is particularly important when considering natural hazards. For effective...
