Sampling Techniques for Time-Variant Reliability Problems

Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Probabilistic Mechanics and Structural and Geotechnical Reliability

Abstract: Time-variant structural reliability problems arise when the structural resistance may change with time (such as in structural deterioration) or when the system is acted upon by two or more stochastic load processes. This paper reviews current trends in using sampling based techniques to solve such problems.
