The Handbook of Performability Engineering considers all aspects of performability engineering, providing a holistic view of the entire life cycle of activities of the product, along with the associated cost of environmental preservation at each stage, while maximizing the performance.However, only recently, in the mid 1960s, have attempts been made to consider the presence of uncertainty in civil engineering problems. Structural engineering has provided leadership in developing the necessary mathematics and theanbsp;...
