The course presents basic and advanced methods for reliability analysis and risk assessment, which are commonly used in technical practice. The wide range of technical topics, as a part of routine engineering calculations, are covered by presented methods. In addition to the mathematical and statistical methods for determining the reliability characteristics, the main emphasis is concerned on the description of the analytical methods in the context of a more complex technical unit, i.e. the system, containing many interacting components. The presented methodical apparatus is part of a wider philosophical concept called Probabilistic Risk Assessment, which has generated a great interest, especially after several major industrial disasters.
