Risk and reliability analysis is an area of growing importance in geotechnical engineering, where many variables have to be considered. Statistics, reliability modeling and engineering judgement are employed together to develop risk and decision analyses for civil engineering systems. The resulting engineering models are used to make probabilistic predictions, which are applied to geotechnical problems.

Reliability & Statistics in Geotechnical Engineering comprehensively covers the subject of risk and reliability in both practical and research terms

* Includes extensive use of case studies

* Presents topics not covered elsewhere--spatial variability and stochastic properties of geological materials

* No comparable texts available

Practicing engineers will find this an essential resource as will graduates in geotechnical engineering programmes.
