GENERAL REMARKS During the last century, probabilistic methods for design and analysis of engineering systems have assumed a prominent place as an . Reliability of Randomly Excited Hysteretic Structures. Authors (view affiliations) B. F. Spencer Jr. Conference proceedings. 34 Citations; Downloads; Part of the Lecture Notes in Engineering book series for uncertainties in both the static and dynamic loadings to be considered and therefore give a better measure of the reliability of a. American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics Sunrise Valley Drive, Suite Reston, VA Cited by: Reliability sensitivity evaluation of randomly excited linear structures with uncertain parameters is addressed. The excitation is modeled as a stationary Gaussian random process. Uncertainty affecting structural parameters is handled within a non-probabilistic framework by applying the interval model.
The study investigates the application of ideas from variance reduction schemes, developed in the area of computational structural reliability modelling, to the problems of experimental estimation of time variant reliability of randomly excited vibrating structures. Reliability-based design approaches are useful in case of some unique structures and situations, for which the design codes are not available. Fragility curves are important in dynamic analysis of the base-excited structures, which are developed from the stochastic analysis and are measure of the seismic performance of a structure. The problem of reliability analysis of randomly driven, stochastically parametered, vibrating structures is considered. The excitation components are assumed to be jointly stationary, Gaussian. In this paper, stochastic seismic response analysis and reliability assessment of six-storey steel-framed structures with viscous dampers are carried out using the probability density evolution method and the theory of extreme value distribution. The base excitation .
