Abstract

The level of ground settlement under the effect of certain factors is one of the markers indicating the adequacy of adopted design solutions. By comprehending settlement values, it is possible to infer the degree of risk associated with a project and, if necessary, introduce changes to the design. The concept of reliability management here manifests itself in the timely adjustment of the decisions made, while it is necessary to use the procedure of the quantitative assessment of the probability of the occurrence of a particular limit state. A qualitative assessment indicates only the limits of an area, which approximately characterizes the effects of changes in the geotechnical situation. In this article, a method for determining the probability of exceeding the limit deformation of a building-base massif using the Monte Carlo statistical method is developed, and an algorithm and computer program implementing the proposed calculation method are created.
