  • 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 timevariant 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 & reliability methods for probabilistic design of engineering structures such as buildings, bridges, offshore structures, costal structures, wind turbines etc.
