Abstract: Reliability analysis is perhaps one of the most practically important branches of the general field of stochastic hydraulics. Its potential applications include quantitative evaluation of the safety of existing hydraulic structures, risk-based optimal design of hydraulic systems, identification of most effective expansion or correction measures, error analysis, and decision making. A general review is given of the papers on reliability analysis presented in the Fourth International Symposium on Stochastic Hydraulics as a partial reflection on the current status of reliability analysis in hydrosystems engineering.
