Reliability-based design optimization

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


As mentioned in earlier chapters, many system failures can be traced back to various difficulties in evaluating and designing complex systems under highly uncertain manufacturing and operational conditions. Our attempt to address this challenge continues with the discussion of reliability-based design optimization (RBDO). RBDO is a probabilistic approach to engineering system design that accounts for the stochastic nature of engineered systems. Our discussion of RBDO will cover the problem statement and formulation of RBDO as well as several probabilistic design approaches for RBDO.
