Paper Title:
Effects of Various Types of Distribution on Probabilistic Method and FAD
  Abstract

The reliability estimation of pipeline is performed in accordance with the probabilistic methods such as the FORM (first order reliability method) and the SORM (second order reliability method). A limit state function has been formulated with help of the FAD (failure assessment diagram). Various types of distribution of random variables are assumed to investigate its effect on the failure probability. It is noted that the failure probability increases with the increase of the dent depth, the operating pressure and the outside radius, and the decrease of the wall thickness. Furthermore it is found that the failure probability for the random variables having the Weibull distribution is larger than those of the normal and the lognormal distributions.
