Description: Concept of probability and statistics is very important to solve various civil engineering problems. In this video course, basic probability concept and different probabilistic models will be discussed to educate the audience about the vital role of such methods in civil engineering. Concept and definition of random variables and different functions of random variables will be covered in the initial part of the course. Both univariate and multivariate functions will be discussed. Concept of joint, marginal and conditional probability distributions, moments, expectations, correlation will also be discussed. Afterwards, focus is given to commonly used probability distribution functions in civil engineering. Both discrete (binomial distribution, poisson’s distribution) and continuous distribution functions (normal, lognormal, exponential distribution, gamma distribution) will be discussed. Concept of central limit theorem will also be also introduced. The course will be ended with the discussion of statistics and sampling.
