High Order Limit State Functions in the Response Surface Method for Structural Reliability Analysis

  title={High Order Limit State Functions in the Response Surface Method for Structural Reliability Analysis},
  author={Henri P. Gavin and Siu Chung Yau}
The stochastic response surface method (SRSM) is a technique for the reliability analysis of complex systems with low failure probabilities, for which Monte Carlo simulation (MCS) is too computationally intensive and for which approximate methods are inaccurate. Typically, the SRSM approximates a limit state function with a multidimensional quadratic polynomial by fitting the polynomial to a number of sampling points from the limit state function. This method can give biased approximations of… CONTINUE READING
