Short course: Uncertainty Quantification, Reliability and Sensitivity Analyses applied to Geotechnics and Structures

19 novembre 2020
09:00 – 17:00
Due to the current situation, this course will take place online

This short course will give participants an insight into probabilistic approaches in general, uncertainty
quantification, reliability, sensitivity analyses and associated benefits with respect to a deterministic
approach. Practical applications including typical geotechnical problems (slope stability, foundation
bearing capacity, anchored wall, and tunnel in urban environment) will be discussed and solved using
Matlab, combined with UQLab ( and ZSOIL (
