In recent years, there have been considerable advances in the characterization of soil variability and its application in geotechnical designs. It is recognized that in using reliability-based design it is necessary to consider all sources of uncertainty in the analysis and incorporate them in the geotechnical design. It is also necessary to examine the reliability-based approach in relation to deterministic approaches. In this study, cone tip resistance (qc) data obtained from a static cone penetration test on a stiff clay deposit are analyzed by using random field theory; and statistical parameters, such as the mean, variance, and autocorrelation function, are estimated in evaluating the reliability of the allowable bearing capacity of a strip footing founded on the above deposit.
