Online Risk and Reliability Training

About The Course

The course duration is 4 days and will consist of both theoretical and practical applications of risk and reliability engineering. The course will introduce the fundamentals of Risk analysis and reliability engineering. Reliability, availability and maintainability (RAM) Analysis will be dealt with. Quantity risk analysis, basic statistics, distribution of failure, reliability of failure, consequences of failure and monte-carlo simulations (MCS). On successful completion of this course, you will be able to:

1) identify and analyse the concepts and principals of risk and reliability engineering and their potential applications to different engineering problems.

2) Assess and analyse appropriate approaches to the collection and interpretation of data in the application of risk and reliability engineering methods.

3) Evaluate and select appropriate techniques and tools for qualitative and quantitative risk analysis and reliability assessment.

4) Analyse and evaluate failure distributions, failure likelihood and potential consequences and develop solutions for control/mitigation of risks.

Professor Purnendu Das
BE, ME, PhD, C.Eng, C.MarEng, FRINA, FIStructE, FIMarEST
has been the Director of ‘ASRANet from its inception in February 2006. He retired as Professor of Marine Structures in the Department of Naval Architecture & Marine Engineering at the University of Strathclyde, UK. Past EU projects were MARSTRUCT (a network of excellence on Marine Structure) and SHIPDISMANTL (a cost effective and environmentally friendly dismantling of ship structures). Past industrial projects included work from the UK Health and Safety Executive (HSE), MoD UK, Subsea-7 UK, Shell, Wood group and US Navies etc. He was the principal investigator of many EPSRC projects. Before joining the University of Glasgow in 1991 he worked with British Maritime Technology as Principal Structural Engineer (1984-91). He is the author of more than 250 publications, including contract reports and more than 60 journal papers and was a member of the editorial boards of the ‘Journal of Marine Structures’, ‘Journal of Ship & Offshore Structures’, ‘Journal of Engineering under Uncertainty: Hazards, Assessment and Mitigation’ and ‘Journal of Ocean and Climate System’ amongst others. His areas of research include limit state design and analysis & reliability analysis of ship & offshore structures. Professor Das has wide ranging industrial and academic contacts and has advised and supervised 20 PhD students, to his credit. Details of visits and collaborations include his various sabbatical study periods spent at University of California, Berkeley, USA (July – September 1996), at Lloyd’s Register of Shipping (August1997), Kockums Ltd (July 1998) and spent some time at Instituto Superior Técnico (IST), Lisbon (July 2000). He has been running various successful CPD courses which are attracting many people from different industries. These courses are on ‘Fatigue & Fracture Analysis’, ‘Ships at Sea’, ‘Advanced Analysis and Design of Offshore Structures’, ‘Offshore Floating System Design’, ‘Structural Response under Fire and Blast Loading’ and ‘Design of Pipelines and Risers’ amongst others. He was a member of ISSC (International Ship and Offshore Structure Congress) for the periods of 1991-97 and 2003 – 2006. He was a member of the OMAE (Offshore Mechanics and Arctic Engineering) Organising Committee on ‘Safety and Reliability’. He has organised six ASRANet International Conferences in 2002 (Glasgow), 2004
(Barcelona), 2006 (Glasgow), 2008 (Athens), 2010 (Edinburgh) and 2012 (London) where a large number of participants from various countries attended. The theme of the conference is the integration of risk, advanced structural analysis and structural reliability analysis as applicable to various engineering structures. He was the member of Research committee of the Institution of Structural Engineers (I.Struct.E) London for 3 years (2014- 2017). At present he is a visiting professor at the University of Montenegro, Montenegro and University of Stavanger, Norway.

Dr Srinivas Sriramula

Dr Srinivas Sriramula is currently a Senior Lecturer at the University of Aberdeen. Dr Sriramula specialises in technical safety computations and has over 15 years research experience in developing uncertainty quantification schemes for engineering systems.
