DYNAMIC DESIGN PHILOSOPHY OF SOILS BASED ON THE BAYESIAN RELIABILITY PREDICTION

In the general earthworks design problems, all information needed for design is collected in advance and the design is completed before the construction. However, since many kinds of uncertainties are inevitably involved in the results of design, it is far better from aspects of costs and safety if a design can be changed using new information which can be obtained during construction. This advantage is specifically large in the earthwork problems because the change of design is comparatively easy. In the present paper, the process in which the previous design is changed by new information is called the "dynamic design procedure" and formulated based on the Bayesian reliability prediction. The stability problem of an embankment constructed on a soft ground is taken as an example. /TRRL/
