Abstract

The authors have been proposing a Reliability Based Design (RBD) scheme for practicing geotechnical engineers that is termed GRASP (Geotechnical Reliability Analysis by a Simplified Procedure). The one of the essences of GRASP is its simplified way to evaluate the effects of the soil spatial variability on structure performance, i.e. The LocalAverage (LA) of soil property for an appropriate volume is used to evaluate the effects. This simplified procedure is explained and justified through a few examples in this paper. Other aspects of GRASP are described in the sister paper prepared by the same authors in this conference.
