On procedures for reliability assessment of
mechanical systems and structures
G. I. Schueller

 
Abstract
    In this paper a brief overview of methods to assess the reliability of mechanical systems and structures is presented. A selection of computational procedures, stochastic structural dynamics, stochastic fatigue crack growth and reliability based optimization are discussed. It is shown that reliability based methods may form the basis for a rational decision making.
 
Key Words
