Abstrait:

In geotechnical reliability analysis, random volatility in marginal distributions of shear strength parameters has been rarely considered. Unfortunately, conventional marginal distribution models cannot characterize real probability distribution accurately, leading to considerable dispersion with incomplete probabilistic information. In this paper, an estimation methodology is proposed based on copula theory coupling information diffusion technique. Firstly, information diffusion distribution is extended to represent one-dimensional marginal distributions of shear strength parameters. Secondly, copula theory is employed to characterize the dependence structures among the parameters. Eventually, equivalent sample is yielded by information diffusion distribution that has been already established. A case study in Singapore is implemented to enunciate and validate the competence of the proposed method. The performances of the candidate copulas coupling different marginal distributions are further discussed. Results indicate that information diffusion distribution can efficiently capture the random volatility of real distributions of shear strength parameters and hold remarkable superiority in modeling marginal distributions. The equivalent sample, estimated by information diffusion technique in conjunction with Gaussian copula, has considerable consistency with original data. The proposed method can provide a reference to reliability analysis in geotechnical engineering.
