Abstract

The uncertainties encountered in the evaluation of foundation stability for offshore gravity structures are reviewed. The uncertainties include those about the load, the material type, the material strength, and the analytical method. The means and coefficients of variations of these are used as inputs to compute the mean and coefficient of variation of the safety factor and the reliability index. These are used to assess the effect of various options in site exploration and strength measurement on the foundation reliability.
