Focussing on structural reliability methods, reliability-based optimization, structural system reliability and risk analysis, lifetime performance and various applications in civil engineering. Invaluable to all concerned with structural system reliability and optimization, especially students, engineers, and workers in research and development.Although specific to an initial Gumbel distribution, the idea is transferable to other distributions and will be the subject of future study. ...
