  1. 1. Reliability-based Assessment of Concrete Dam Stability

    Author : Marie Westberg; Avdelningen för Konstruktionsteknik; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; assessment; stability; concrete dam; structural reliability analysis; probability; uplift; system reliability;

    Abstract : Risk management is increasingly used in dam safety and includes risk analysis, risk evaluation and risk reduction. Structural Reliability Analysis (SRA) is a probabilistic methodology that may be used in the risk assessment process. READ MORE

  2. 2. Refining the fatigue assessment procedure of existing steel bridges

    Author : John Leander; Raid Karoumi; Bert Norlin; John D. Sørensen; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; Fatigue; Steel bridges; Assessment; Reliability; Monitoring; Utmattning; stålbroar; bärighetsberäkning; tillförlitlighet; mätningar; Söderström; getingmidjan;

    Abstract : This thesis treats the fatigue assessment process of steel bridges. The purpose is to identify areas with potential of enhancement with an overall aim of attaining a longer service life. The aging bridge stock in Sweden and in many other developed countries is an impending economical burden. READ MORE

  3. 3. Voltage Dip (Sag) Estimation in Power Systems based on Stochastic Assessment and Optimal Monitoring

    Author : Gabriel Olguin; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : power quality; symmetr?cal components; stochastic methods; impedance matrix; voltage dips; integer optimisation; power systems; short-circuit faults; voltage sags;

    Abstract : This dissertation deals with the statistical characterization of the performance of power systems in terms of voltage dips (sags). It presents a method named voltage dip estimation that extends monitoring results to buses not being monitored. READ MORE

  4. 4. Reliability Assessment and Probabilistic Optimization in Structural Design

    Author : Rami Mansour; Mårten Olsson; Xioping Du; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Reliability-based design optimization RBDO ; First- and Second-Order Reliability Method FORM and SORM ; Response Surface Single Loop RSSL ; Probability of failure; Reliability Assessment; Probability of fatigue failure; Solid Mechanics; Hållfasthetslära;

    Abstract : Research in the field of reliability based design is mainly focused on two sub-areas: The computation of the probability of failure and its integration in the reliability based design optimization (RBDO) loop. Four papers are presented in this work, representing a contribution to both sub-areas. READ MORE

  5. 5. On the hosting capacity of distribution networks for solar power

    Author : Enock Mulenga; Math Bollen; Nicholas Etherden; Luis (Nando) Ochoa; Luleå tekniska universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; Aleatory; distribution networks; epistemic; hosting capacity; overvoltage; solar power; stochastic; Electric Power Engineering; Elkraftteknik;

    Abstract : The future will bring changes in energy production and consumption that will affect the performance of electricity distribution networks. Electric vehicle charging will increase consumption; the installation of solar photovoltaic (PV) units will increase production. Both will change the energy flow and affect the power quality.
