Nowadays, powerful methods are available for the calculation of structural safety values. These permit to calculate the global probability of failure of complex structures, relying on deterministic techniques able to determine the stability state (limit state) for a prescribed set of parameters. Such techniques are often non linear finite element analyses. The Joint Committee of Structural Safety defines different levels at which the structural safety of existing buildings can be assessed… CONTINUE READING
