In this paper, the authors present a methodology for the robust geotechnical design (RGD) of braced excavations in clayey soils. The maximum wall deflection induced by the excavation was chosen as the response of concern in the design and was computed using a finite element analysis model based upon the beam-on-elastic-foundation theory. The variation of the maximum wall deflection of a given design of a braced excavation due to uncertainty in the soil parameters and the surcharges was used asdoi:10.1016/j.strusafe.2013.05.003 fatcat:rwyilryrvfdwniuactno2ngbga
