Prerequisiti
The full comprehension of structural problems investigated in the class requires a basic knowledge of engineering mechanics and structure mechanics. For the developments in a probabilistic framework, concepts of multidimensional differential calculus are requested.
Obiettivi formativi
Students are expected to learn and fully understand the most used methods for the analysis and design of complex structural systems under material and load uncertainty. Methods for input/output uncertainty propagation should be part of the knowledge of the students at the end of the course.
Programma e contenuti
a) Basics in probability theory. Random variables, probability density function (pdf) and cumulative distribution function (cdf), expectations and moments of order one, two and three.
b) main distributions and their use in engineering practice: Gaussian, lognormal, type 1 and 2 extreme, exponential. Applications.
c) Introduction to statistics. Applications to parameter estimation.
Metodi didattici
Lectures on theoretical and practical issues. Problems soved independently by students under the suupervision of the teacher (when needed)
