Geotechnical Safety and Reliability: Honoring Wilson H. Tang

Sponsored by the Geo-Institute of ASCE. This report contains 21 peer-reviewed papers assembled in honor of Wilson H. Tang, Ph.D., P.E., S.E. Tang was a pioneer and a prominent leader in the field of engineering uncertainties and reliability analysis. His work extended well beyond the geotechnical realm, encompassing problems in codified design in structural engineering, risk assessment in hydraulic systems, and reliability of transportation systems. The papers in this Geotechnical Special Publication cover a broad range of geotechnical topics, including site exploration; uncertainty characterization and model calibration; reliability methods; reliability of foundations; Bayesian updating; risk assessment; and monitoring and quality assurance. GSP 286 will be of interest to geotechnical researchers and practitioners working in all areas of geotechnical risk assessment.
