ICYA-4503 Geotechnical Analysis base on Reliability and case studies

This course is divided into two parts: 1) The first part presents a set of correlations used in geotechnical engineering explaining the advantages and weaknesses of using those correlations. Afterward, the main tools used to include the concepts of probability in the design of geotechnical works are described. These tools include development in Taylor series, the Rosenbluth method, and Montecarlo Simulation. The use of these tools is illustrated with an example of the design of an embankment resting over soft soil. 2) The second part of the course presents case studies of famous geotechnical works.
