This book presents the most important applications of probablistic and statistical approaches and procedures to structural engineering.
Introduction: theory of structures and theory of probability. Part 1 Analytical methods: random quantities and structural reliability; models of external actions; elastic structures; plastic structures; structural reliability and structural design. Part 2 Operative methods: data statistics; statistical analysis of random functions; numerical methods and applications; probabilistic methods and structural codes; approximations, errors and open questions in probabilistic structural engineering. Appendices: elements of probability theory; random variables; functions of random variables; sequences of random variables; random processes; mathematical models for random process analysis; crossing and extremes of random processes.
