Course Description

Most of civil engineering applications must take into account the possibility of randomness. That is, the quantities that we are interested in exhibit an inherent variation that must be taken into account. This course develops a comprehensive framework in stochastic modeling, through many examples, applicable in analyses and decision making in all kinds of civil and environmental engineering problems. The emphasis in the course is placed on the application side of probabilistic techniques rather than their theoretical side with special emphasis in parametric and nonparametric statistics; reliability issues; stochastic processes; regression and simulation.
