Abstract

The use of the finite element method in the safety evaluation of a structure is discussed. The method is based on the Advanced First Order Second Moment reliability analysis procedure. Several sources of nonlinearities, including geometric and material, are incorporated into the algorithm. Special features like flexibility of the connections are also incorporated without losing the basic simplicity. Since the procedure is based on several deterministic finite element analyses of a structure, it is extremely robust and can capture all the essential features that need to be considered in any deterministic finite element analysis.
