Wiley (Required) MATLAB Student’s Version, MathWorks, 2007. Highly recommended Reference(s) Course Description The role of risk and probability in Civil Engineering is described and basic probability concepts are presented. Probability distribution functions commonly used to model and analyze Civil Engineering problems are discussed. Methods for estimating parameters and determining distribution models from observational data are introduced. Monte Carlo simulation methods are practiced. Detailed examples of the application of probabilistic
