Abstract: The key components that are in place for implementing rigorous reliability based foundation design (RBD) in foundation engineering are discussed. The characteristics of a simple second-moment probabilistic approach, which is available to combine uncertainties arising from site conditions, measurement techniques, and correlation models in a general way is also described. An important advantage of RBD is that the reliability index provides a consistent measure of risk that can be compared across different foundation types and loading nodes. With a properly calibrated simplified RBD format, a geotechnical engineer can focus on ground and construction evaluation in rigorous fashion.
