CEE 512 - Risk Analysis for Civil and Environmental Engineers

(Level: Graduate)

Course Outline

The course covers basic concepts in risk analysis, for civil and environmental engineers, with an emphasis on applications from both fields. A summary of the topics covered is listed below:
  • Statistics,
  • Probabilities (discrete and continuous distribution functions),
  • Estimation of probability distribution functions,
  • Sampling and confidence intervals,
  • Sensitivity analysis,
  • System reliability (parallel and in-series systems),
  • Networks (transportation and water distribution networks),
  • Pattern recognition, clustering and artificial neural networks,
  • Stochastic networks (PERT),
  • Markov chains,
  • Survival analysis.

Course Delivery Tools

The aforementioned topics are taught on the basis of a specific civil/environmental project (term project) and with the help of specialized software (Oracle Primavera P6, MS-Excel, Matlab, Oracle Crystal Ball).
