Summary

Over the last decade, much attention has been paid to engineering risks associated with calamities such as the Indian Ocean tsunami, hurricanes in the US, terrorist attacks, and the sudden collapse of engineered structures. Future events are largely unpredictable, but statistics and probabilistic approaches provide powerful tools for managing risks. In this work, particular focus is placed on applications of probability theory and statistics in all aspects of civil engineering and related fields, including aerospace engineering, earthquake engineering, environmental engineering, nuclear engineering, transportation, and wind engineering.
