  1. 1. On reliability-based design of rock tunnel support

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : William Bjureland; KTH.; [2017]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Rock engineering; reliability-based design; Eurocode 7; observational method; tunnel engineering; Bergmekanik; sannolikhetsbaserad dimensionering; Eurokod 7; observationsmetoden; tunnelbyggnation.; Civil and Architectural Engineering; Byggvetenskap;

    Abstract : Tunneling involves large uncertainties. Since 2009, design of rock tunnels in European countries should be performed in accordance with the Eurocodes. The main principle in the Eurocodes is that it must be shown in all design situations that no relevant limit state is exceeded. READ MORE

  2. 2. Reliability-based Design Procedure for Flexible Pavements

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Yared Hailegiorgis Dinegdae; KTH.; [2015]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Top-Down fatigue cracking; asphalt mixture morphology; fracture mechanics; response surface; reliability analysis; load resistance factor design; Civil and Architectural Engineering; Byggvetenskap;

    Abstract : Load induced top-down fatigue cracking has been recognized recently as a major distress phenomenon in asphalt pavements. This failure mode has been observed in many parts of the world, and in some regions, it was found to be more prevalent and a primary cause of pavements failure. READ MORE

  3. 3. 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

  4. 4. Reliability based design optimization for structural components

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : Tomas Dersjö; KTH.; [2009]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : .... READ MORE

  5. 5. Reliability-based evaluation of concrete dams

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : Marie Westberg; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2007]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; spatial correlation; assessment; concrete dam; uplift; structural reliability analysis; existing structure;

    Abstract : Swedish concrete dams are designed and assessed based on deterministic design using safety factors. The combination of increasing age, new methods for calculation of design floods and increasing demands by society to ensure a high level of safety, has resulted in upgrading and rebuilding needs for dams.
