Short course: Uncertainty Quantification, Reliability and Sensitivity Analyses applied to Geotechnics and Structures, November 19th 2020, at HEIA-FR in Fribourg


INVITATION to participate in a short course on uncertainty quantification, reliability and sensitivity analyses applied to geotechnics and structures.

Lectures will be given by Prof. Bruno Sudret and Dr. Stefano Marelli (ETH Zürich), and Prof. S.Commend (HEIA-FR)

This short course will give participants an insight into probabilistic approaches in general, uncertainty quantification, reliability, sensitivity analyses and associated benefits with respect to a deterministic approach. Practical applications including typical geotechnical problems will be discussed and solved.

This course will be held on Thursday, November 19th 2020, at HEIA-FR in Fribourg. If we cannot meet there due to CoVid-19 issues, we will organize the course online, through Teams or Zoom.
