9780003831542: Probability and Statistics in Civil Engineering: An Introduction

The application of statistics to civil engineering design is a new and developing field, and the growing acceptance of limit state design is encouraging the use of probability theory for determining values. A further development is the use of the reliability index in geotechnical design, now becoming recognised as a powerful alternative to the use of partial safety factors. This book presents a straightforward summary of the most important aspects of statistics and probability theory that are relevant in civil engineering, particularly in the field of soil mechanics.
