Here is the listing of Best reference books on Reliability Based Civil Engineering Design.
|1. “Structural Reliability Analysis and Design” by R. Ranganathan
Book Review: This book demonstrates the mutual couplings that occur between the mathematical models of physical phenomena and also illustrates the parts of a system of an aircraft complicate and thereby explaining the consequences throughout the system. The book also describes the techniques for computing the influences as system design derivatives. These derivatives are useful for both judgmental and formal optimization purposes. The technique also presents the decomposition of design process into smaller tasks and incorporates the design tools.
|2. “Structural Reliability Theory and its Application” by P. T. Christensen and M. J. Baker
Book Review: This book contains topics on modern reliability theory application in structural engineering and soil mechanics. The book covers both basic and advanced theoretical concepts related to the analysis and design of structural reliability analysis. The book also covers reliability theory concepts based on uncertainty algebra. The book discusses random processes and stochastic response analyses in detail. The book also discusses failure probability in terms of first passage time. The book also discusses gross errors and problems related to structural quality control.
|3. “Structural Reliability Analysis and Prediction” by R. E. Melchers
Book Review: This book addresses the issues of building safety, bridges, towers and many other structures. The book also discusses structure safety and focuses on failure definition and other models which are used for loading and strength. The book also describes various techniques that can be applied to the problems that occur in structural reliability analysis and prediction. The book also includes procedures for reliability prediction of various structures. This is a suitable textbook for undergraduate and post graduate courses in the field of civil, structural and mechanical engineering.
|4. “Probability concepts in Engineering Planning and Design” by A.H.S. Ang and W.H. Tang
Book Review: This book discusses the methodologies and concepts that are used to evaluate uncertainty significance in the area of system performance and design. The book also discusses the concepts of probability and statistics that is used for quality control processes. The book also discusses practical concepts and probability applications related to engineering. The book is suitable to engineers who require a working knowledge of the basic concepts of probability. The book also contains numerous problems and solutions to them.
|5. “Applications of Structural Systems Reliability Theory” by P. T. Cristensen and Y. Murotsu
Book Review: This book provides introduction to engineering optimization theory thereby explaining the efficient solutions to problems. The book also provides a practical and real world understanding of engineering optimization thereby focusing on the techniques and strategies related to engineering applications in design, operations and analysis. The book also includes duality theory, interior point methods for solving LP problems, convex functions generalization, engineering optimization and many more. The book also deals with the practical issues of model formulation, implementation, starting point generation and contains case studies and numerous examples from chemical, industrial and mechanical engineering.
