# Reliability of Structures

Code Completion Credits Range Language
132YSSK Z 2 1P+1C Czech
Lecturer:
Jaroslav Kruis (guarantor)
Tutor:
Jaroslav Kruis (guarantor)
Supervisor:
Department of Mechanics
Synopsis:

The course is devoted to the reliability of elements and systems. Element reliability is time dependent while the reliability of systems is of type strength-load. Complicated cases are solved by the FORM method. Two simulation methods are introduced: Monte Carlo and LHS.

Requirements:

Structural mechanics

Theory of elasticity

Syllabus of lectures:

1.introduction to the theory of probability

2. random vectors, covariance and correlation

3. reliability of an element, failure rate

4. reliability of systems, series systems, parallel systems

5. Maintainability and availability

6. First Order Method reliability

7. Strength based reliability of elements

8. Strength based reliability of systems

9. Simulation methods (Monte Carlo, LHS)
