We are active in the continuous development and optimization of efficient methods for structural reliability analysis in collaboration with the Technical University of Munich. Below is a list of references on the reliability methods implemented in STRUREL and on application studies conducted with STRUREL.

We also offer training on probabilistic model building, reliability analysis and reliability-based design of engineering systems.
For further information on specific training packages, do not hesitate to contact us.

On March 11 to 12, a short course that is based on Strurel is taking place in Munich. This course focuses on how to model uncertainties in engineering and on how to assess the reliability of engineering systems. All sessions providing a theoretical overview are combined with practical hands-on examples. In the hands-on sessions you will learn how to tackle the problem at hand using the packages Comrel and Sysrel from the leading reliability analysis software Strurel. By the end of the course you will understand the basic concepts of probabilistic reliability assessment and you will be able to apply most standard numerical methods for solving component as well as system reliability problems.
