报告题目:Simulation Methods for Structural Reliability Assessment

报告摘要:The structural reliability methods are presently in a mature state of development and have been used in different fields in the implementation of reliability- and risk-based methodologies for design, maintenance and inspection planning of structural systems. The first- and second-order reliability methods (FORM/SORM) and the Monte Carlo based simulation methods (MCS) are presently two well-established classes of methods that can be used to compute the typically small failure probabilities found in practical engineering applications. The FORM/SORM methods have been widely used and accepted for practical applications due to their efficiency. However, they have known limitations with respect to the accuracy and general applicability to solve complex structural system reliability assessment problems. The MCS methods are nowadays a viable alternative to the FORM/SORM methods due to the presently available computational resources and efficient simulation strategies, making feasible their use in a practical engineering context. Presently, they are recognized as the most versatile and robust methods for structural reliability analysis, which can provide arbitrarily accurate failure probability predictions irrespective of the complexity of the limit states of the structural system. They overcome the limitations of accuracy and general applicability of the FORM/SORM methods and can provide an error estimate for the failure probability predictions. An overview of different MCS methods for structural reliability analysis will be given in this lecture, with focus on classical variance reduction techniques such as the importance sampling and directional simulation and more advanced methods based on asymptotic techniques and subset simulation. A critical qualitative comparison of the different MCS methods will be given. Some application problems in the context of reliability analysis of marine structures will be presented, with focus on problems requiring the use of surrogate models for time-consuming implicit limit states and large structural systems.

报告题目:Adaptive Elastic Metamaterials and Their Novel Applications

报告摘要:Over the past decade, acoustic/elastic metamaterials have attracted a great deal of attention due to their peculiar dynamic properties, including a negative mass density and stiffness, which are not observed in natural materials. One of the greatest challenges in the development of acoustic/elastic metamaterials is how to tune, broaden and optimize their wave performance without requiring microstructural modifications. An adaptive metamaterial through the use of electronically controlled elements is studied to make metamaterials attain tunable properties/functions. Both theoretical and physical realization of adaptive elastic metamaterials are performed to realize controllable effective mass densities and moduli through electromechanical coupling and electric circuit designs. Specifically, we will employ the adaptive meta-composite to perform broadband and adaptive signal amplification functions in addition to being a broadband wave control.

报告题目:Spare routing problem with multiple minimal paths for a time-based stochastic flow network

报告摘要:To discuss the system reliability of spare routing for a computer network, a model of time-based stochastic flow network (TBSFN), in which each arc has several possible capacities/states and a lead time, is addressed in this study. The minimum transmission time to send a given amount of data through a single minimal path is uncertain. Although the transmission time will be shortened even if the data are sent through p (p > 1) disjoint minimal paths simultaneously, it is still variable in a TBSFN. This study is concerned with evaluating the probability that a specified amount of data can be sent through p minimal paths simultaneously within a time threshold. Such a probability, named the system reliability, can be treated as a performance index for measuring the transmission ability. An efficient methodology to assess the system reliability is proposed firstly. Furthermore, a spare routing for boosting the system reliability is established in advance to indicate the main and spare p minimal paths. Subsequently, the system reliability of the spare routing can be computed easily, which shows the contribution of the spare design. From the viewpoint of decision making, we may conduct the sensitive analysis to find out the most important arc which will increase/decrease the system reliability most significantly.
