ASRANet
Network for Integrating
Structural Safety, Risk and
Reliability
NEWSLETTER
Summer 2003
ASRANet Mission Statement
Recognising the need to achieve adequate levels of structural safety, the Network will promote the integration of structural
safety with risk and reliability, and place advanced analytical methods within appropriate contexts.
The Network will be driven by the needs for all industries to combine improved safety with reduced costs. It will aim to
improve the state of the art by highlighting best practice, encouraging technology transfer between industry sectors and
dissemination of knowledge of existing practice, discussion of future needs and raising awareness generally.

3-day Continuing Professional
Development Course: Design By
Advanced Structural Analsysis
24th-26th September 2003,
Universities of Glasgow & Strathclyde
The methods of advanced structural analysis meet the
needs of increasing sophistication in standards by providing
more accurate methods of predicting the structural
behaviour and allowing for simplified design techniques.
The objective of the course is to provide an update which
reflects changes and developments in the state-of-the-art
in structural analysis and design. It will introduce direct
design applications while at the same time improving the
basic understanding of non-linear structural behaviour.
Emphasis will also be given to conceptual design methods.
Both ultimate and fatigue limit state will be covered. The
ability to handle the structural aspects of innovative designs
will be increased. It will also help to produce more efficient
structural designs, based upon rational analysis and
evaluation methods. Improved structural design-analysis
expertise should lead to more efficient structures in some
cases and to improved in-service performance in others.
Who Should Attend
Engineers and scientists involved in the design and
assessment of engineering structures, e.g. towers, bridges,
offshore structures etc. Personnel from oil companies,
consultancy organisations, classification societies and
certifying authorities will benefit from attending this course.
Previous participants
This will be the fourth time this course has been offered
and 40 public and industrial organisations have sent
staff to attend, including:
ABS, Amerada Hess, Babtie Group, BAE Systems,
Bluewater Engineering (Netherlands).,Bomel Ltd, Cetena
(Italy), Corus, DERA, DNV, East Ayrshire Council,
Germanischer Lloyd, Halcrow Crouch, HSE, MoD, Lloyd’s
Register, Scottish Office, Welsh Office, Weidlinger
Associates Ltd, and many universities.
Course Documentation: Lecture notes will be available
for the course, including recommendation for general textbooks.
Continuing Professional Development (CPD): This
course meets the requirements of the Royal Institution of
Naval Architects for CPD.

5-7th July 2004
Barcelona, Spain
In association with the International Center for
Numerical Methods in Engineering (CIMNE) and
the Universitat Politecnica de Catalunya (UPC),
Spain
Colloquium Objectives
Following the success of the 1st Asranet International
Colloquium, held in Glasgow Scotland in July 2002, which
attracted around 100 delegates from 16 countries around
the world, the Organising Committee now invites papers
from researchers and practitioners in Advanced Analysis,
Risk and Reliability for the 2nd Colloquium, to be held in
Barcelona on 5-7th July 2004.
The Colloquium intends to draw on recent experience in
order to explore the full range of methods and procedures
relevant to stochastic modelling, reliability assessment
and risk-based management of engineering structures.
Contributions involving generic methodologies and case
studies, as well as comparative assessment across
different industrial sectors are welcomed.
Proposed Session Themes
Stochastic computational mechanics
Reliability-based optimisation
Stochastic load combinations
Structural system reliability
Response surface methodology
Probabilistic deterioration analysis
Intelligent use of monitored data
Human and organisational risk
Life-cycle risk assessment
Risk integration
Applications may include bridges, nuclear installations,
marine and offshore structures, tall buildings, masts and
towers, pipelines, etc.
The programme will include some invited papers whose
aim will be to present the main issues relevant to the
above themes and application areas, thus providing
additional impetus for an open exchange of ideas.
Call for papers
Abstracts of about 500 words on any of the above topics
are invited by 1st October 2003. Upon review by the
Technical Advisory Panel, notification will be given by 10th
January 2004. Abstracts should be sent to Professor P.K.
Das, whose full contact details are given overleaf.
Colloquium Proceedings will be available in CD-ROM
format, with printed summaries, at registration. In order
to ensure the production of the Proceedings in time, final
manuscripts will be required by 1st April, 2004.
