Delft, The Netherlands

The Department of Structural Reliability at TNO (Netherlands Organization for Applied Scientific Research) is organizing a workshop on the computational challenges and aspects in the reliability analysis of engineering structures. The particular focus of the workshop is reliability problems that are:
(i) high-dimensional (>40);
(ii) have multiple failure modes;
(iii) and have small failure probabilities (1e-3–1e-6 ).
The aim of the workshop is to bring together researchers, practitioners, and software developers from all over the world to discuss challenges related to this topic, share experience, learn from each other, and to jointly find ways of solving these challenges. The application area is intentionally broad, we expect practitioners and researchers from all branches of engineering who face the outlined challenges, e.g. civil, mechanical, aerospace, industrial, and mechatronics engineers.
