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...

Probabilistic Fatigue Analysis of Fixed Offshore Structures

Long-Term Wave Probabilities Based on Hindcasting of Severe Storms

Offshore Technology in Civil Engineering
Hall of Fame Papers from the Early Years: Volume Two
Prepared by the Program Committee, Offshore Technology Conference, of the Coasts, Oceans, Ports, and Rivers Institute of ASCE. This series presents...

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...

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...

Probabilistic Simplified and Detailed Subsurface Drainage Water Quality Modeling of Nitrate Leaching
A transparent uncertainty structure is derived for simplified and detailed conceptual nitrate leaching as a result of a probabilistic modelling procedure. The uncertainty structure consists...

Probability of Bridge Failure Due to Scouring

Condition Assessment and Maintenance of Aging Structures in Critical Facilities—A Probabilistic Approach

Deterioration Model for Corrosion in Concrete Using Monte Carlo Simulation

Characterization of Uncertainty in Underground Structures

Probabilistic Analysis of Fort Pierce Beach Recession with Hardbottom Features

Order Amid Uncertainty (Available in Geoenvironmental special issue only)
Bayesian statistical methods allow engineers to deduce probabilities from incomplete information. If there is a theoretical or empirical reason why a particular probability distribution...

Fuzzy Rule-Based Forecasting of Extreme Rainfall Probability Conditioned on Sea Surface Temperature
(No paper) The recent El Nino event demonstrated the importance of sea-surface temperature on rainfall anomalies. The purpose of this paper is to develop a methodology to forecast extreme...
