Course detail

System Concept/Approach to Risk Engineering

ÚSI-RSSYPAcad. year: 2019/2020

Course content focuses on the following areas:
Technical aspects of the problems of risk systems,systems, objects and structures and their evaluation and risk analysis.
Risk and defectology terms; Randomness in risk; Engineering quality; Assessment of reliability of structures; the design on the basis of probabilistic approaches and methods for partial coefficients of reliability. Load bearing capacity limit, limit state. Compute the probability of structural failure. Data collection and prediction aim at problems of risk engineering. Effect of study will appear in the analysis and modelling problems in the field of risk engineering and the ability to formulate the critical points (identification of hazardous locations) project, thus existing structure. It will be used in applications of computer technology.

Planned learning activities and teaching methods

Teaching is carried out through lectures and seminars. Lectures consist of interpretations of basic principles, methodology of given discipline, problems and their exemplary solutions. Seminars particularly support practical mastery of subject matter presented in lectures or assigned for individual study with the active participation of students.

Assesment methods and criteria linked to learning outcomes

Discussions during the lectures and seminars; Final test.
