Training School Trogir 2018

The second TU1402 Training School on the Value of Structural Health Monitoring Information will be held in Trogir, Croatia for 3 days during the period of 24. to 28. September 2018. Further information is provided in the announcement. The registration is closed.

The objective of the second COST TU1402 Training School is to explore methods and tools to implement a Value of Information analysis in structural engineering. Through the training school, the students will acquire knowledge and skills on the implementation of probabilistic modelling, structural reliability analysis and decision analysis by the use of Bayesian networks. All learning content will be taught alongside its implementation in a selected case study. A student who successfully has taken part in the course will be able to:

  • Develop and apply probabilistic models of the relevant uncertainties in decision analyses, in structural reliability analyses and for measurement information modelling.
  • Perform Value of SHM Information and decision analyses.

Who should attend?

Post-Graduate Students and professionals.
As the training school is focused on implementation of methods, the attendees should ideally have a solid background in relevant topics as e.g. probability theory, uncertainty representation, reliability theory, and decision theory. If potential attendees feel insecure about their skills, brief self-study is recommended prior to the training school. Reference to basic engineering-oriented literature is given the announcement. Further references can be given on request.

Application, scholarships and registrations

There are TU1402 scholarships with a support of maximum 400,00 Euro available. Please send a motivation letter, a short CV including the most relevant study transcript via email to Sebastian Thöns
( The registration closes at the 15.08.2018.
