Response surface methods which approximate the actual performance function using simple algebraic equations are widely used in structural reliability studies. The response surface approximations are often used to estimate the reliability of a structure. Errors in the response surface approximation affect the results of reliability analysis. This work investigates the error in the failure probability estimated using a response surface approximation. It is observed that small errors in the… CONTINUE READING
