To Bayes or Not to Bayes
Welcome to Probabilistic Methods in Geotechnical Engineering course web site. The purpose of this web is to enhance the support services we provide to students. I've provided a number of resources here to help you learn, resolve problems, and suggest improvements to our course.

the basic understanding of probability theory.
Compares deterministic and probabilistic approaches to the action and
reaction of structures of, on, or in soil when subjected to loadings. Consider
uncertainties in material parameters and their effect on designs. Stability is
assessed in terms of reliability as well as customary factors of safety.
Inverse problems arising from experimental study is solved by
probabilistic estimation theory.
Other data analysis (e.g. model selection and experimental design) may
also be discussed.
