Probabilistic Modeling of Soil Profiles. New concepts and methods for modeling the natural variability of soil properties are presented and illustrated. The proposed technique of modeling the statistical character of soil profiles serves a dual function: (1)It provides a format for quantifying the information gathered during site investigation and testing, about the subsurface conditions at a Cited by: Freshly updated and extended version of Slope Analysis (Chowdhury, Elsevier, ).

This reference book gives a complete overview of the developments in slope engineering in the last 30 years. Its multi-disciplinary, critical approach and the chapters devoted to seismic effects and probabilistic approaches and reliability analyses, reflect the distinctive style of the original.
