The International Probabilistic Workshop (IPW2020) will take place on September 23-25, 2020 at University of Minho, Guimarães, Portugal
Title: Data-based probabilistic tools on quality control of existing structures
Organizer(s): Jose C. Matos (University of Minho), Joan R. Casas (Technical University of Catalonia)
Summary: The quality control of existing structures is a needed procedure in order to guarantee that such structures should fulfil their performance requirements during their whole life. There are two possibilities of performing such control, respectively, through a qualitative and a quantitative-based approach. In order to perform the former procedure it is recommended the use of probabilistic tools to compute the corresponding KPI (Key Performance Indicators), i.e., Reliability, Safety, Availability, Economy and, sometimes, Environment. Within this session, it is presented a set of quantitative-based applications for the quality control of existing structures.
