Reliability design of structures
Date of Issue2015
School of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering
This report would provide the relevant and common methods adopted by structural and design engineers, to bring forth the structures we witness and utilize in our daily lives. A brief introductory of the reliability analyses methods developed by the previous generation of structural engineers, alongside with adequately detailed information of the current era’s deterministic probabilistic and semi-probabilistic methods would be discussed in this report. Conclusively, a few concerns in the study of the design reliability of structures would be addressed. This would provide readers a deeper understanding of the methods and different uses of the reliability principles in the field and develop a sense of appreciation of these methods.
