(1991)A new approach to evaluate the reliability of structural systems using a Monte Carlo variance reduction technique called the Importance Sampling is presented. Since the efficiency of the importance sampling method depends ...
(1993)The disposal of waste is a critical component in the infrastructure. Landfill facilities are one of the most commonly used means of managing waste. Landfills are equipped with lining systems to minimize the rate of leakage ...
(1991)A methodology to evaluate the reliability of geotechnical systems considering the presence of geological anomalies is developed. The proposed methodology consists of three major tasks: (i) modeling of the anomaly uncertainties ...
(1997)Detection monitoring systems composed of a single row of wells at different spacing and different distances from the contaminant source were evaluated. It is shown that, out of these systems, the optimal detection system ...
