Summary Probabilistic structural dynamics offers unparalleled tools for analyzing uncertainties in structural design. Once avoided because it is mathematically rigorous, this technique has recently remerged with the aide of computer software. Written by an author/educator with 40 years of experience in structural design, this user friendly manual integrates theories, formulas and mathematical models to produce a guide that will allow professionals to quickly grasp concepts and start solving problems. In this book, the author uses simple examples that provide templates for creating of more robust case studies later in the book. *Problems are presented in an easy to understand form *Practical guide to software programs to solve design problems *Packed with examples and case studies of actual projects *Classical and the new stochastic factors of safety.
Bibliography Includes bibliographical references (p. 420-426) and index.
