We are part of the Institute of Energy Technology at the Department of Mechanical and Process Engineering (D-MAVT). Our new group was established in June 2013.
Research in the Laboratory of Reliability and Risk Engineering is aimed at the development of innovative techniques and hybrid analytical and computational tools suitable for analyzing and simulating failure behavior of engineered complex systems.
We aim to estimate and quantitatively define reliability, vulnerability and risk within these systems. We focus on highly integrated energy supply, energy supply with high penetrations of renewable energy sources, communication, transport, and other physically networked critical infrastructures that provide vital social services.
