About Us

Our Mission

The mission of the Structural Reliability Partnership is to demonstrate effective, quantitative, and deployable improvements in the engineering tools and best practices for structural reliability assessment.

Our Purpose

The purpose of the Structural Reliability Partnership is to leverage investments from multiple institutions on areas of mutual interest in the domain of structural reliability.

What is the Structural Reliability Partnership?

Our purpose is to coordinate research, share best practices, and leverage investments from multiple institutions on areas of mutual interest in the domain of structural reliability.

The Partnership is intended to serve as an umbrella organization coordinating efforts to address additional areas that affect reliability, such as long-term creep, hydrogen-embrittlement effects, stress corrosion cracking, fatigue, etc. The Structural Reliability Partnership will demonstrate quantifiable and deployable improvements in structural reliability assessment.

There is frequent evidence in the community of multiple isolated institutions conducting similar research, which stalls progress due to redundancy. The lack of knowledge sharing also prevents the community from building upon progress as it is made. The Structural Reliability Partnership offers a framework for institutions to share knowledge, coordinate/synchronize efforts, and leverage funding on topics of mutual interest in structural reliability assessment.
