Abstract

 The authors have tried to develop a practical and a simplified reliability analysis procedure for geotechnical structures. Since the reliability analysis has been developed basically by the structural engineers, there remain a number of points that need to be developed for geotechnical reliability analysis. In this paper, basic works done by the authors are integrated to show the full picture of a proposed procedure called GRASP, which stands for Geotechnical Reliability Analysis by a Simplified Procedure. In the latter half of the paper, the proposed procedure is applied to the reliability analysis of shallow foundations to demonstrate its effectiveness and usefulness in engineering practice. The calculated results show some weaknesses to be improved in the current design practice.
