Best practice in civil engineering involves the use of modern statistical techniques, many of which are only described in the research literature or rather specialist books on specific themes. This book brings these techniques together in the context of civil engineering. The emphasis is on modeling and topics include random number generation, reliability and quality assurance, univariate and multivariate extreme value distributions, regression methods, Bayesian methods, time series analysis, Markov chains and stochastic dynamic programming, variograms and kriging, spectral analysis and wavelets, and design of experiments.
