Joint Committee on Structural Safety Continuing Education & Advanced School: Structural Reliability and JCSS Probabilistic Model Code

Share with :

Methods of reliability, risk and safety assessment are increasingly gaining importance as decision support tools in various fields of engineering. The JCSS Continuing Education & Advanced School is intended to be world leading in the field of risk analysis. A deep understanding of the fundamental principles of structural reliability is provided; application is foreseen to a number of realistic cases in practice. The Advanced School helps engineers to better play the important role they have for society in establishing the basis for decision making.

The JCSS Continuing Education and Advanced School provides a deep and thorough insight in the latest developments in the concepts and tools for probabilistic structural reliability engineering and risk informed decision making.


The JCSS is a committee in the field of Structural related Risk and Reliability, acting on behalf of the Liaison Committee of the following six international professional associations:

  • CIB International Council for Research and Innovation in Building and Construction
  • ECCS European Convention for Constructional Steelwork
  • fib International Federation for Structural Concrete
  • IABSE International Association for Bridge and Structural Engineering
  • IASS International Association for Shell and Spatial structures
  • RILEM Reunion internationale des Laboratoires et Experts des Materiaux

The goals of the JCSS are:
· To improve the general knowledge and understanding within the fields of safety, risk, reliability and quality assurance, for all types of civil engineering and building structures, on the basis of sound scientific principles and with an open eye for the applications in practice.
· To take care that inter-associational pre-normative research in the field of Risk and Reliability is performed in an effective and adequate way
· To strive for coordination between the interassociational prenormative research and normalization activities in ISO, Eurocode etc.
· To provide appropriate support and technical co-ordination for the work of the Member Associations
