Aim and Scope

The First International Symposium on Risk Analysis and Safety of Complex Structures and Components (IRAS 2019) is organised by ESIS TC12 (in-team TC12), which will take place in the Faculty of Engineering of the University of Porto, in the City of Porto, located at seaside in the northwest region of Portugal, in 1-2 July 2019. This Symposium is intended to be a forum of discussion of the recent advances in maintenance, safety, risk analysis, probabilistic assessment, life-cycle performance, fatigue, fracture, damage mechanics, numerical simulation of a wide range of infrastructures, such as, engineering technical systems, transportation systems, bridges, buildings, dams, railways, underground constructions, wind and transmission towers, offshore platforms, pipelines, naval vessels, oceanic structures, nuclear power plants, airplanes and other types of structures including aerospace and automotive structures are considered. It is expected contributions from engineers, metallurgists, material scientists, among others, allowing a very multidisciplinary discussion.
