The Risk and Reliability Analysis in Geotechnical Engineering course comprises part of the taught component of a postgraduate subject, Analytical Soil Mechanics SGS 787, taught as part of the Honours Degree in Geotechnical Engineering at the University of Pretoria.
Analysis techniques used in geotechnical engineering typically estimate the collapse load or the factor of safety applicable to a boundary value problem. However, the magnitude of the collapse load or the factor of safety does not provide information on the probability of failure. It is often the probability of failure, more so than the actual factor of safety, that is important for engineers and their clients. In this course a number of techniques are introduced for the calculation of the probability of failure. A working knowledge of basic statistical principles is assumed, but important concepts will be briefly reviewed.
Postgraduates students registered for the Honours Degree in Geotechnical Engineering are required to attend the course and pass the examination for Analytical Soil Mechanics SGS 787. There is no formal evaluation of other course attendees
Project management is about developing and implementing a product, service, event or facility within a predetermined time frame, budget and quality parameters.
