Abstract

A reliability analysis of the embankments is conducted considering the variability of the internal friction angle and the seismic hazard in this study. Also, the probability of overflow of earth-fills during heavy rains is evaluated. The rainfall intensity is dealt with as a probabilistic parameter, and the various rainfall patterns are tested by the Monte Carlo method. Finally, the total risk due to the earthquakes and the heavy rains is evaluated for an earth-fill site. As the result of this study, the possibility for the practical use of the proposed method for the plans of the maintenance of deteriorated earth-fill dams, has been verified. Especially, the results can be used effectively to evaluate the priority for the earth-fills to be improved.
