Abstract

Hydraulic structures are designed with reference to some natural events that could be imposed on the structure during its anticipated service life. Due to the existence of various uncertainties, the design of hydraulic structures should include as many of these uncertainties as possible. This paper closely examines the effect of inherent hydrologic and parameter uncertainties, as well as hydraulic uncertainty on the optimal risk-based design of hydraulic structures through an example of levee system design.
