Reliability Methods in Structural Mechanics (EGR355)


Prerequisite Courses

Course Memo

The purpose of this course is to introduce the concepts of the theory of structural reliability and the reliability-based design formats. The tools needed in the course are probability, statistics and basic mechanics (statics, dynamics and strength of materials). Students are expected to have working knowledge of differential and integral calculus as well as basic mechanics. Upon completion of this course, students will be expected to be able to perform statistical load analysis and strength analysis, as well as to solve structural reliability problems, including design and safety checking under quasistatic loads. Prerequisites: EGR225, EGR340; spring offering only
