A compilation of over 230 papers, Probabilistic Mechanics and Structural Reliability features the recent advances in probability and statistics as applied to civil and mechanical engineering. The three keynote lectures address the challenges in stochastic mechanics applied to earthquake engineering, structural dynamics, and finite element methods. This volume covers a wide range of contributions ranging from highly theoretical to immediate applications. The following topics are covered: civil infrastructure systems; codes and standards; computational stochastic mechanics; damage control and detection; earthquake engineering; expert systems; fatigue and fracture; flow-induced vibrations; fuzzy sets; geotechnical systems; Monte Carlo simulation; pressure vessels and piping; probabilistic methods in design/analysis; random processes and random fields; random vibration; safety of aerospace systems; safety of bridges; safety of buildings; safety of nuclear structures; safety of offshore structures; site characterization; stability and bifurcation; statistical and reliability analysis; stochastic finite elements; stochastic modeling of environment; structural control; system identification; system reliability; wave propagation; and wind engineering.
