Applications of Possibility and Evidence Theory in Civil Engineering

Abstract

This article is devoted to applications of fuzzy set theory, possibility theory and evidence theory in civil engineering, presenting current work of a group of researchers at the University of Innsbruck. We argue that these methods are well suited for analyzing and processing the parameter uncertainties arising in soil mechanics and construction management. We address two specific applications here: finite element computations in foundation engineering and a queueing model in earth work.

Keywords. engineering applications, finite element methods, queueing models, imprecise parameters, possibility and evidence theory, fuzzy probabilities
