Online Structural Reliability Training Course

About The Course

The course will deal with the basic concept of structural reliability analysis and the various advantages of doing this. The main advantage is that this method takes into account the uncertainties of design variables which a deterministic analysis cannot take this into account. The course will start with a brief overview of statistics and probability which is basic pre requisite of any reliability analysis. It will then talk of various types of uncertainties. Analysis techniques like FORM & SORM will be dealt and finally a DEMO of a software called STRUREL by a German company called ERACONS.

Who Should Attend?

This training is suitable for mechanical, process, energy engineers and professionals that want to obtain knowledge on applied aspects of structural reliability.

Prof Purnendu Das.

Prof Purnendu Das. BE, ME, PhD, C.Eng, C.MarEng, FRINA, FIStructE, FIMarEST has been the Director of ‘ASRANet Ltd’ since February 2006. He retired as a Professor of Marine Structures in the Department of Naval Architecture & Marine Engineering at the University of Strathclyde, UK in September 2011. 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, Woodgroup 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 Ocean and Ship Technology’ and ‘Journal of Ocean and Climate System’ and the Journal of Ship Mechanics amongst others. His areas of research include limit state design and analysis & reliability analysis of ship & offshore structures. Purnendu 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 (August 1997), Kockums Ltd (July 1998) and spent some time at Instituto Superior Técnico (IST), Lisbon (July 2000).
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 was a member of the “Research Committee” of Structural Engineers (IStructE) during 2012-2015. He was a visiting Professor at IST Surabaya, Indonesia from July 2015 for one year. He is now a visiting Professor at the University of Stavanger, Norway and at the University of Montenegro, Montenegro.

Dr Srinivas Sriramula

Dr Srinivas Sriramula is currently a Senior Lecturer at the University of Aberdeen. Dr Sriramula specializes in technical safety computations and has over 15 years research experience in developing uncertainty quantification schemes for engineering systems. To date he has participated in a number of collaborative research projects on asset risk, reliability and maintenance modelling, funded by Innovate, International Government agencies, Industrial partners, and the Lloyd’s Register Foundation (LRF).
Dr Sriramula is a Chartered Engineer (IMechE) and currently coordinates the MSc in Safety and Reliability Engineering (including for Oil & Gas), MSc Subsea Engineering and MSc Offshore Engineering at the University of Aberdeen.

Dr Wolfgang Betz

Wolfgang studied civil engineering and computational mechanics and received his Ph.D. from TU München in 2018. He works as a consultant at Eracons. His areas of expertise are Bayesian inference, reliability assessment and probabilistic modeling. Wolfgang also develops the software products RELY and Strurel, as well as specialized probabilistic software tools
