ME 425 Probabilistic Mechanical Design

Credits: (3-0) 3

Basic concepts of probability and statistics are introduced including Gaussian, Exponential, and Weibull distributions. Primary emphasis is placed on treating stresses, strains, deformations, and strength limitations as random variables and computing probability of failure under required loads. Considerable time is devoted to converting data into meaningful engineering parameters for making engineering decisions. Statistical methods applied to topics in mechanical design.
