Abstract

Uncertainties in geotechnical engineering are generally approached using probabilistic tools. A tentative is made to mention number of other approaches for dealing with lack of data and scarce information in geotechnical problems. Fuzzy sets and interval-based studies are of interest. We show through number of examples the applicability of such approaches and how they can offer valuable tools for uncertainty analysis in geotechnical engineering. A general view will be given on the use of intervals, fuzzy sets and random sets in optimization of geotechnical investigations, diffusion of stresses in granular media and in consolidation.
