ABSTRACT
The paper is focused on the Latin Hypercube Sampling method (LHS) that can be successfully utilised for description of the variability of the soil and rock mass in the geotechnical design. LHS is a good alternative to the time-demanding Monte Carlo simulation method. Their spreading in the geotechnical design is due to it’s understandable and easily implementation to the commonly used software. The paper gives a brief description of the LHS method algorithm. The main part of the paper is then focused on the performed application of LHS in the two analysis of underground structures constructed in the Czech Republic.
