#### Viden

Knowledge:

• 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

Skills:

• 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 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.
• use correct professional terminology

#### Kompetencer

Competencies:

• be able to participate in a dialog on modeling of uncertainties, risk analysis and assessment of reliability of structural and nonstructural components and systems
• be able to model, calculate and communicate risk analysis, modeling of uncertainties and assessment of reliabilities for engineering problems.
