• Characteristics of failure mass and safety factor during rainfall of an unsaturated slope 

      Le, Thi Minh Hue; Gallipoli, Domenico; Sánchez, Marcelo; Wheeler, Simon (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2016)
      Water is an important factor triggering destabilization of soil masses in slopes, particular in unsaturated condition. Rainfall and snow melting are some of the main sources of natural water which frequently induce unsaturated ...
    • Reliability Analysis of Monopile Foundations for Offshore Wind Turbines 

      Depina, Ivan (Doctoral thesis at NTNU;2016:171, Doctoral thesis, 2016)
      Initiated by the increasing energy demands and instabilities in oil and gas prices there is an ongoing transition from the conventional to the renewable energy sources across Europe. The goal is to satisfy 20% of the energy ...
    • Reliability analysis with Metamodel Line Sampling 

      Depina, Ivan; Le, Thi Minh Hue; Fenton, Gordon A.; Eiksund, Gudmund Reidar (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2016)
      This paper presents an approach for reliability analysis of engineering structures, referred to as Metamodel Line Sampling (MLS). The approach utilizes a metamodel of the performance function, within the framework of the ...
