By Robby Caspeele, Luc Taerwe, Dirk Proske

This publication offers the complaints of the 14th foreign Probabilistic Workshop that was once held in Ghent, Belgium in December 2016. Probabilistic tools are at the moment of an important value for learn and advancements within the box of engineering, which face demanding situations provided by way of new fabrics and applied sciences and quickly altering societal wishes and values. modern wishes regarding, for instance, performance-based layout, service-life layout, life-cycle research, product optimization, evaluate of present constructions and structural robustness provide upward thrust to new advancements in addition to exact and virtually acceptable probabilistic and statistical engineering tips on how to aid those advancements. those lawsuits are a helpful source for someone drawn to modern advancements within the box of probabilistic engineering applications.

The complete loss of power in several units of a nuclear power plant was never considered in the design of the plant and, therefore, no procedures were in place to respond to the problem. The tsunami also caused major damage in the area around the power plant, which made it difficult to get support and equipment to cope with the overheating reactors, particularly under the enormous time pressure to find a solution within hours and days. The release of radiologically contaminated air to the environment was the only solution to lower the pressure in the reactors.
