Probabilistic Analysis of Bearing Capacity of Piles

Cosic M., Susic N., Folic R.: Probabilistic Analysis of Bearing Capacity of Piles (poster)

The poster shows a probabilistic concept for determining the pile bearing capacity, taking into account the variability of CPT test parameters (stochastic simulations) and methodology of calculation according to the requirements of Eurocode 7. Solutions obtained using this approach were compared with those obtained from the static load test (SLT).

Bridges: Nonlinear Analyses, Probability Theory and Optimization Theory

Cosic M., Folic R., Folic B.: Bridges: Nonlinear Analyses, Probability Theory and Optimization Theory (poster)

The poster shows a multidisciplinary approach to the assessment of seismic performances based on the Performance-Based Earthquake Engineering (PBEE), taking into account the multi-criteria optimization theory in analyzing the priority methods for bridge rehabilitation/strengthening. One bridge model was subjected to nonlinear static pushover analyses (NSPA), target displacement analyses using the spectrum capacity method (CSM), vulnerability analyses, and reliability analyses, while for a damaged bridge, in addition to be considered using the above methods, was also analyzed using the VIKOR method of multi-criteria optimization.
