This book describes the main methods used in the reliability of structures and their use in the design process leading to reliable products. Since new reliability software programs are added to the usual calculation, generally based on the finite element method, this book provides the necessary understanding for their implementation in research or industry.


1. Introduction.
2. Preliminary Approach to Reliability in Mechanics.
3. Elementary R – S Case.
4. Isoprobabilistic Transformation.
5. Reliability Index.
6. Products of Reliability Analysis.
7. Probability of Failure.
8. Simulation Methods.
9. Reliability of Systems.
10. “Safety” Coefficients.
11. Mechanical–Reliability Coupling.
12. Stochastic Finite Elements.
13. A few Applications.
14. Conclusion.

About the Authors

Maurice Lemaire is Professor at the French Institute for Advanced Mechanics in Clermont-Ferrand and Head of the research group on mechanics and engineering. His works deal with the numerical modeling of the structures and their probabilistic approaches. He directed numerous doctorate theses and took part in many industrial studies in partnership with industrial companies. An active member of several associations, he takes part in the development of the probabilistic methods for both research and for the technical applications.
