Læringsmål

Viden

  • Understand the concepts risk, uncertainty, reliability and safety.
  • Know statistical methods for modeling physical, model, statistical and measurement uncertainties.
  • Know methods for assessment of reliability of  structural systems using probabilistic methods.
  • Know methods for systems reliability for non-structural components and its applications in engineering.

Færdigheder

  • Be able to model physical, statistical, model and measurement uncertainties.
  • Be able to use failure rates and hazard functions to model failures in systems reliability for non-structural components.
  • Be able to model uncertainties for loads and strengths.
  • Be able to estimate the reliability by FORM/SORM methods (reliability index method) and by simulation.
  • Be able to model system behavior and estimate the reliability of series and parallel systems.
  • Understand basic concepts of stochastic processes and time-variant reliability methods.
  • Be able to estimate characteristic and design values for strength parameters and load bearing capacities, and for environmental loads and load effects using test data and measurements.
  • Be able to calibrate partial safety factors and load combination factors.
  • Be able to apply Bayesian statistical methods.
  • Be able to apply risk and reliability methods for probabilistic design of engineering structures such as buildings, bridges, offshore structures, costal structures, wind turbines etc.
