Abstract

Because of vastness and irregularities in the ground, site investigations may not be enough to grasp the true distribution of ground characteristics. Therefore, using the probability distribution estimated from ground investigations, there might be significant divergence from the true distribution. In this case, it is important to make available a generalized theory of reliability design. This chapter generalizes the concept of a robust control approach, which can be applied to reliability design of soil structures, and to construct methods required for concrete calculations.
