08 – 09 SEPTEMBER 2022

Welcome to the website of 19th International Probabilistic Workshop organised by the Department of Civil Engineering at Stellenbosch University, South Africa, and the Klokner Institute of Czech Technical University in Prague, Czech Republic.

The event was held in Stellenbosch, South Africa on 8-9 September 2022. Since its inception, IPW has aimed to provide a suitable platform for sharing ideas and knowledge in the field of probabilistic reliability and risk assessment and has been hosted by many European countries, such as Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, the Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, and the United Kingdom. This was the first time that IPW took place outside Europe.

The IPW 2022 overarching theme of the assessment of existing structures attracted 34 contributions coming from 11 countries from three continents (Africa, Australia, and Europe). The contributions covered a broad range of topics, including reliability of existing buildings and bridges, uncertainty quantification, durability analysis, statistical treatment of data, environmental effects, risk assessment and cost optimisation, applications of advanced techniques in the assessment of existing structures, information about developments of new codes of practice, and the difference between the assessment of existing structures and structural design. All peer-reviewed conference papers  in the proceedings are indexed by Scopus.


The proceedings of IPW can be accessed at ACTA POLYTECHNICA CTU  here. 

Looking forward to meeting you at IPW 2024 in Guimaraes, Portugal!
