Civil engineering contains a lot of uncertainty from design to implementation of construction i.e. construction. For every engineer so it is must to analyze uncertainty in civil engineering. To implement the best in field every designer also must know about the upcoming uncertainty in his design. Civil engineering construction works are either risky or may lead to failure if not properly analyzed. A lot of types of structral failures are often occurs at civil engineering structure construction. Moreover the soil is called as the most uncertain in terms o engineering views. Soit is very much important to analyze civil engineering structures in view of uncertainty.

Chapter included in Analyzing Uncertainty in Civil Engineering  books are:
