Zhang, H.Z., 2020. Evaluation of foundation stability of port geotechnical engineering projects based on random field theory. In: Al-Tarawneh, O. and Megahed, A.

With the rapid development of marine trade and maritime transportation industry, the increase of port-based enterprises has promoted the construction and expansion of port projects in China. Since the spatial correlation of the soil mass in ports is quite complex, the traditional foundation stability evaluation methods have great uncertainty. The random field theory considers the autocorrelation coefficient of the soil mass, so this paper applies the reduction function to calculate the stability of the foundation of geotechnical engineering projects in actual ports based on the random field theory, and explores the feasibility of the random field theory in the calculation of foundation stability. The research results show that: taking the portside geotechnical engineering project in the Pearl River Delta as an example, by applying the random field theory and the reduction function to examine the reliability of the ten tests, it can be clearly seen that the reliability index of the foundation stability of the geotechnical engineering project calculated by the reduction function increases significantly. After applying the random field theory, the calculated foundation stability of the actual port geotechnical engineering project is more reliable. The research in this paper provides a theoretical basis for applying random field theory in the reliability calculation of port foundation engineering projects.
