This volume contains papers presented at the 4th IFIP WG 7.5 Conference on Reliability and Optimization of Structural Systems held in Munich in September 1991. The aim of the conference was to discuss theoretical and computational progress made in these areas. From the contents: D.M. Frangopol: Bridge Loading, Reliability and Redundancy - Concepts and Applications. - A. Der Kiureghian, C.C. Li, Y. Zhang: Recent Developments in Stochastic Finite Elements. - R.E. Melchers: Simulation in Time-invariant and Time-variant Reliability Problems. - J.L.T. Santos: Numerical Techniques for Design Sensitivity Analysis of Structural Systems. - C. stergaard: Reliability in Ship Design.
