  1. 1. Aspects on probabilistic approach to design From uncertainties in pre-investigation to final design

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Anders Prästings; KTH.; [2016]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Reliability-based design; Geotechnical design; Geotechnical structures; Sheet-pile wall; Characterization of uncertainties; Geotechnical investigations;

    Abstract : Geotechnical engineering is strongly associated with large uncertainties. Exploring a medium (soil) that is almost entirely and completely hidden from us is no easy task. Investigations can be made only at discrete points, and the majority of a specific soil volume is never tested. READ MORE

    Abstract : Dredging activities at Ports and Harbors are inevitable for the safe navigation of ships and vessels. Dredged material may range from very fine and contaminated sediments to sand and gravels. While, granular dredged material can be directly utilized in civil engineering applications, fine sediments may require further treatment before use. READ MORE

  4. 4. Managing uncertainties in geotechnical parameters From the perspective of Eurocode 7

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Anders Prästings; KTH.; [2019]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Eurocode 7; Characteristic value; Partial-factor method; Reliability-based design; Civil and Architectural Engineering; Byggvetenskap;

    Abstract : Geotechnical engineering is strongly associated with large uncertainties. Geotechnical site investigations are made only at discrete points and most of a soil volume is never tested. A major issue is therefore how to cost effectively reduce geotechnical uncertainties with respect to structural performance. READ MORE
