Selection of construction methods for deep foundation excavations

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

The process of correctly selecting an appropriate construction method among alternatives involves a great deal of complexity and difficulty because numerous decision criteria such as safety, cost, duration and quality that are often evaluated by domain experts. This paper presents a fuzzy Analytical Hierarchy Process (Fuzzy AHP) to effectively evaluate relative weights of pairwise comparisons and determine the final alternative. This model employs fuzzy numbers and α-cut operations to better represent the corresponding degrees of believe associated with vague or imprecise information obtained from human assessments. A case study is performed to demonstrate the capability of this model. The results validate the effectiveness and practicality of the model.
