CE 724 Probablistic Methods of Structural Engineering
    Syllabus    |    Video Lectures & Notes     |     Logistics   

This course is intended to provide an understanding of probability and statistics in civil/ mechanical engineering applications. It will focus on common probabilistic models, statistical analysis of observed data, reliability based design and decision making, and modeling of uncertainties that are unavoidable in the design and planning of engineering systems. The major topics include: (1) Fundamentals of probability theory, (2) Common probabilistic models, (3) Statistical analysis of recorded data, (4) Fundamentals of reliability analysis (First and second order reliability methods), (5) Monte Carlo simulation,(6) Development of reliability based design codes, (7) Evaluation of target reliability levels (code calibration), (8) System reliability and risk-based decision making. 3 credit hours.
