A stochastic element-free Galerkin method was developed for reliability analysis of linear-elastic structures with spatially varying random material properties. A random ®eld representing material properties was discretized into a set of random variables with statistical properties obtained from the statistical properties of random ®eld. In conjunction with meshless formulations, the ®rst-order reliability method was employed to predict the full probabilistic characteristics of a structural… CONTINUE READING
