Structural Reliability CPD

Analyse the reliability of structures and solve realistic problems.

Structural Reliability programme

Dates: November 2023

Venue: Newcastle University

About the programme

This module will give students an understanding of the principles of structural reliability. You will discover some advanced aspects of this field of study, as well as learning how to apply this knowledge by solving realistic problems.

You will:

  • combine analysis, probabilistics, and statistics when presenting data
  • learn about material, load and resistance properties
  • apply different methods of reliability analysis, including Monte-Carlo and FORM
  • analyse realistic structural reliability problems using structural mechanical principles

The course outline includes:

  • review of probability theory
  • statistical properties of structural materials, members and loads
  • structural reliability assessment for components and systems
  • integration and simulation methods
  • second-moment and transformation methods
  • codes and structural reliability
  • software application
