Structural Reliability (a.a. 2019/20)

Programma

Learning objectives:
This course is designed to introduce graduate students to concepts and applications of structural reliability. Upon completion of this course, students will be able to:

1) Compute first- and second-order estimates of failure probabilities of engineered systems;
2) Update reliability estimates based on new observational data;
3) Identify the relative advantages and disadvantages of various analytical reliability methods, as well as Monte Carlo simulation;
4) Use reliability tools to calibrate simplified building codes;
5) Perform reliability calculations related to performance-based engineering for earthquake and wind loads.
6) Build surrogate models of complex engineering systems.

Course topics:

  • Review of random variables and probability distributions;
  • General component reliability;
  • First-order second-moment (FOSM) methods;
  • First-order reliability method (FORM);
  • Simulation methods;
  • Code calibration and acceptable risk/reliability;
  • System reliability;
  • Seismic reliability of structures;
  • Advanced simulation methods;
  • Surrogate modelling.
  • Wind reliability of structures
