Abstract: Calibrations for reliability-based design (RBD) of foundations are critical but are largely "invisible". Some key methods of calibration are discussed, including issues ranging from the basic assumptions involved, distributions of key variables, uncertainties in both load and resistance, target reliability, etc. The goal is to assist engineers in understanding the level of sophistication, or lack thereof, in different approaches to calibrations, which then translates into the degree of confidence one can have in a particular calibration or code.
