Probabilistic Non-linear Finite Element Modelling – Reliability and Safety Formats
Because of uncertainties in loading conditions, material behaviour, geometric configurations, and boundary conditions, the stochastic analyses techniques (which accounts for all these uncertain aspects) must be applied to provide rational reliability analyses and to describe realistically the existing behaviour of engineering structures.
Therefore, stochastic analyses techniques and its proper application for engineering structures requires an education programme/guideline that is portable, provides global acknowledgment, improves structural performance and sets benchmarks within the industry.
