Structural reliability of engineered structures should be the paramount concern for design engineers. The increasing complexity and demands of todays structures makes it imperative that the design engineers have an understanding of all of the design factors that affect long term reliability. Structural analysis is becoming more complex. The design engineer must now consider among other factors failure modes, reliability, safety techniques and probabilistic methods in their analysis. The 12th Biennial conference on Reliability, Stress Analysis and Failure Prevention held April 14-18, 1997 in Virginia Beach, Virginia was offered to address some of the concerns that design engineers face today. Most of the papers presented at this conference are contained in this volume. All of the papers presented cover the theory, design applications and case studies in the areas of stress analysis, reliability, and failure prevention.
