Scholarcy highlights

  • First-order reliability and finite element methods are used to develop a methodology for reliability analysis of structures with stochastically varying properties and subjected to random loads
  • The correlation length of property fields is significant for displacement limit states, but may not be significant for stress limit states
  • Examples studied include a fixed ended beam with stochastic rigidity and a plate with stochastic elasticity
