Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Probabilistic Mechanics and Structural and Geotechnical Reliability

Abstract:

A methodology is presented to determine the probability of failure of steel connections using a systems approach. Results indicate that connection safety evaluations which do not use this approach may not be conservative.
