Analyzing Uncertainty in Civil Engineering Book

This Book addresses the issue of uncertainty in civil
engineering from design to construction. Failures do occur in practice.
Attributing them to a residual risk or a faulty execution of the project does
not properly cover the range of causes. A closer scrutiny of the design, the
engineering model, the data, the soil-structure-interaction and the model
assumptions is required. Usually, the uncertainties in initial and boundary
conditions as well as material parameters are abundant. Current engineering
practice often leaves these issues aside, despite the fact that new scientific tools
have been developed in the past decades that allow a rational description of
uncertainties of all kinds, from model uncertainty to data uncertainty.
Analyzing Uncertainty in Civil Engineering Book
It is the aim of this volume to have a critical look at
current engineering risk concepts in order to raise awareness of uncertainty in
numerical computations, shortcomings of a strictly probabilistic safety
concept, geotechnical models of failure mechanisms and their implications for
construction management, execution, and the juristic question as to who has to
take responsibility. In addition, a number of the new procedures for modelling
uncertainty are explained.
