This course provides a semi-intensive survey of the field of structural reliability engineering. Upon completion of this course, students will be able to compute first- and second-order estimates of failure probabilities of engineered structures and components, measure the relative importance of the random variables associated with a system, identify the relative advantages and disadvantages of various analytical reliability methods, utilize Monte Carlo methods with an understanding of their strengths and weaknesses relative to analytical reliability methods, Use reliability tools to calibrate simplified building codes and perform structural reliability calculations related to performance-based earthquake engineering.
