The aim of this paper is to propose Particles Swarm Optimization (PSO) to calculate the reliability index of a given structure. First of all, the basic modeling of time independent structure reliability is presented, and is followed by the optimization prob lem formulation to assess reliability index with PS O to overcome the difficulties of classical(More)
We present a numerical method to compute the optimal maintenance time for a complex dynamic system applied to an example of maintenance of a metallic structure subject to corrosion. An arbitrarily early intervention may be uselessly costly, but a late one may lead to a partial/complete failure of the system, which has to be avoided. One must therefore find(More)
