348 - Structural Reliability and Safety

Committee Mission: Develop and report information on the use of reliability-based methods in the design, assessment, and rehabilitation of new and/or existing concrete structures.

Goals: 1) Provide input to 318 on code calibration and load and resistance factors; 2) Prepare an article for Concrete International targeting the dissemination of structural reliability concepts and methods; 3) Develop a Tech Note on structural reliability basics; 4) Prepare a document that discusses the proper use of statistical and probabilistic techniques as applied to concrete practice; 5) Develop code recommendations using probability-based design tools to ensure safe, economical, and risk-consistent concrete structures; 6) Sponsor a session on Structural Safety and Reliability during the Spring 2014 in Reno, NV.
