Repairability assessment of foundations is often performed by experts through the use of linguistic expressions. Despite the qualitative nature of these expressions, the Fuzzy Modus Ponens Deduction (FMPD) technique can be used to quantify the graphically solve foundation repairability problems. This technique can be used to partially match an evidence concerning failure mechanisms of damaged foundations to an established production rule. In this paper, the authors employed the newly developed angular fuzzy set models to assess the repairability of damaged foundations. An illustration is presented here.
