SRE Chapter Meeting - Luncheon
“Calculating the Risk of Structural Failure”
Guest Speaker:Robert Graber, STARgroup Solutions, LLC
The presentation will include an example of calculating the probability of failure of a particular structural design under two alternative design processes:
Process 1. A Factor of Safety method is used to determine the allowable stresses and design configuration.
Process 2. Probabilistic design (stress-strength interference) and simulation methods are used to design the structure to meet a “reliability requirement” value.
