Reliability of Plastic Slabs

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

Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Structural Safety and Reliability


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.
