Time-Dependent Fuzzy Stochastic Reliability Analysis of Structures
The paper reviews the development of reliability assessment in structural analysis under consideration of the non-traditional uncertainty model fuzzy randomness. Starting froma discussion of sources of variability and imprecision, uncertainty models are introduced. On this basis, numerical approaches are displayed for uncertain structural analysis and reliability assessment. Thereby, variations in time are considered which results in a time-dependent reliability measure. Capacity and applicability of the approaches are demonstrated by means of an example.
