Monte Carlo Simulation for Structural Reliability

TBC

The webinar will provide an introduction into the application of Monte Carlo Simulation for the solution of structural reliability problems. The principles behind simulation methods will be first introduced and then followed by a description of the steps required for carrying out Monte Carlo simulation. This will include the concepts of random number generation, probabilistic distribution plotting and formulation of the safety margin to estimate probability of failure. Two examples on the application of Monte Carlo simulation, using Excel and MATLAB, will be demonstrated for a typical structural reliability problem.

Presenter
Boulent Imam

Dr Boulent Imam is a Senior Lecturer in Civil Engineering Structures at the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering in the University of Surrey and Programme Director for the MSc Programme in Bridge Engineering. He has been extensively involved in the area of fatigue of bridges, carrying out research in this area collaborating with national

and European infrastructure owners and managers, such as Network Rail, Highways England, TWI. His research has contributed towards in-depth understanding of the fatigue behaviour of riveted railway bridges and developed methods for more reliable quantification of their remaining fatigue life taking into account historical rail traffic, novel fatigue assessment methods, loading, resistance and modelling uncertainties as well as system effects. Later on, Dr imam extended his work on fatigue towards developing fracture mechanics guidelines for the assessment of fatigue crack growth in steel bridge details towards the optimisation of inspection and maintenance planning in steel bridges. Recently, Dr Imam research has expanded towards understanding the potential impacts of climate change on bridge deterioration and quantifying the resilience of bridge infrastructure against extreme events.
