Reliability of Plastic Slabs

by P. Thoft-Christensen, Univ of Aalborg, Denmark,

Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Structural Safety and Reliability

Abstract: In the paper it is shown how upper and lower bounds for the reliability of plastic slabs can be determined. For the fundamental case it is shown that optimal bounds of a deterministic and a stochastic analysis are obtained on the basis of the same failure mechanisms and the same stress fields.
