JCSS Continuing Education and Advanced School course
The fib supports the JCSS Continuing Education and Advanced School course, which will take place from 4 to 11 April 2018 at Stellenbosch University in Cape Town.
Methods of reliability, risk and safety assessment are gaining importance and so are decision support tools in various fields of engineering. The JCSS Continuing Education & Advanced School is at the forefront of risk analysis. The course addresses the fundamental principles of structural reliability and considers their practical use in a number of realistic cases in practice. The Advanced School helps engineers to better play the important role they have in society in establishing the basis for decision making.
Engineers directly involved in probabilistic structural analysis, design and reliability assessment, as well as engineering supervisors and managers responsible for such projects, will benefit from this course and so will PhD students and academics working in the field of risk assessment of structures. Participants are expected to have a solid knowledge of basic probability theory and statistics, including necessary prerequisites on linear algebra, corresponding to the themes included in the course on statistics and probability theory. Moreover, the participants should be familiar with elementary structural analysis (static/dynamic).
