Here is the listing of Best reference books on Risk Assessment and Management in Geotechnical Engineering.
|1. ” Praobability Concepts in Engineering: Emphasis on Applications to Civil and Environmental Engineering” by Ang A.H-S. And Tang W.H
Book Review: This book demonsrates the application of probability and statistics principles to engineering problems. The book explains many concepts and methods related to the fields of physical sciences, civil engineering and environmental engineering. The book also deals with the formulation and solving of real world engineering problems. The book explains concepts with the help of numerous examples and practice problems test the understanding of the users. The book contains chapters on simulation methods in probability, hypothesis testing, correlation analysis and many more.
|2. “Reliability and Statiestics in Geotechnical Engineering” by Baecher G. and Christian J.
Book Review: The book explains the concepts of risk analysis and reliability analysis and its application in geotechnical engineering and also the fact that many variables are taken into consideration. The book explains statistics, reliability modeling and engineering that are used together in risk and decision analysis for civil engineering systems. The book contains many case studies and presents concepts of spatial variability, stochastic properties related to geological materials and many more.
|3. “Probability, Reliability and Statistical Methods in Engineering Design” by Haldar A. and Mahadevan S.
Book Review: The book presents the fundamentals of reliability and statistics that is needed for risk based engineering analysis and carries out clear presentation of design. The book also contains numerous examples that explain the risk based design concepts in the field of reliability and statistics. The book covers many concepts and skills that are needed for reliability assessments. The book also presents many reliability assessment methods and concepts that are needed for risk based design implementation in practical problems. The book also explains risk based and deterministic design concepts.
|4. “Reliability of Structures” by Nowak A.S. And Collins D. R.
Book Review: This book demonstrates the importance of reliability in structural design. The book dicusses the concepts of limit states, limit state functions, reliability calculating methods and many other safety factors. The book also discusses probability distributions and various parameters that are used in loads and resistances. This is a very good textbook for semester courses at the graduate and undergraduate level and a very good reference book for structural engineers.
