Course Description I. FUNDAMENTALS OF PROBABILITY THEORY. Events and set theory. Mathematics of probability (axioms, theorems, and rules). Random variables and probability distributions. Multiple random variables and joint probability distributions. Functions of random variables. Statistical inference from observational data. Regression and correlation analyses. Bayesian approach. II. RELIABILITY AND RISK. Structural performance and limit states. Margin of safety and safety factor. Aleatory and epistemic uncertainty. Probability of failure and reliability index. First-order and second-order reliability methods (FORM and SORM). Monte Carlo simulation methods. Importance sampling. Multiple failure modes. Component and system reliability. Model uncertainty. Safety formats. Semi-probabilistic method. Failure consequences and risk. Target reliabilities. Code calibration. Probabilistic assessment of existing structures. Risk quantification.
