Abstract

In this paper, a robust geotechnical design (RGD) methodology is applied to design of rock bolts for slope stabilization. In rock engineering practice, the variation of shear strength characteristics of rock discontinuities is often quite difficult to ascertain. The RGD methodology is utilized to achieve a certain level of design robustness against the uncertainty in the estimated statistics of rock properties, in addition to meeting safety and cost requirements. A multi-objective optimization is used to identify a set of robust designs. The example of rock bolts design for slope stabilization is used to showcase the merit of the RGD methodology.
