Structural reliability theory based on probability and statistics is a key theory to assess variability of external loads, structural response and structural performance. In my laboratory, this noble theory is fully utilized to aim at more rational structural design method. In addition, development of special methods which are capable of dealing with uncertain phenomena and structural behavior, and application of probability theory to broader engineering problems: risk analysis, cost-benefit analysis and etc. are of my major concern.
