Failure probability

Seismic bearing capacity of strip footings is a challenging task for geotechnical engineers due to its stochastic framework instigated by the natural uncertainties incorporated into geotechnical properties and earthquake parameters. Consequently, the introduction of the random field theory into reliability analysis may provide power tools to succor desi...
