Engineering always deals with uncertainties, and efforts are needed to quantify them. A probabilistic analysis considers the statistical information of the problem to this quantification. In the geotechnical area, uncertainties play a particular role in structure design because it deals with naturally formed materials. Evaluating spatial variability has...

In this work, the problem of consolidation of two layers is discussed and analytical solutions for the specific case of Luscher’s problems are developed. Literature suggests that they are the first analytical solutions for problems that cannot be solved by the Gray-Barber closed form solutions for calculation of equivalent thickness. Luscher&a...
