Structural reliability and risk analysis are key factors in the conventions for safe design of infrastructure systems. The research is aimed at developing advanced methods for evaluating the reliability and risk of structures, taking into account various factors such as environmental conditions, material properties, and human behavior.
The Structural Mechanics group works closely with design codes and standards organizations to ensure that their findings are incorporated into the latest design guidelines and codes. Their work is critical in promoting the safe and sustainable design of infrastructure systems, as well as mitigating the risks associated with extreme events and climate change. Through the innovative research significant contributions are made towards the overall safety and sustainability of our built environment.
