The measurement of uncertainties was taken on an actually constructed steel structure. The stress and strain of each part of the structure are calculated based on the conditions assumed in the design stage by the numerical analysis. The differences between the measured data and calculated values are statistically analyzed. The reliability level of an actual steel structure is discussed using the measured data.
