An Effective Evolutionary Algorithm for Analyzing a Realiability of Geotechnical Engineering
The reliability index is not only nonlinear but also continuous, so we design the real coded genetic algorithm to improve the performance of the algorithm. The experimental results indicate that our method is 10 times faster than the binary-coded genetic algorithm, more accurate and stable than other methods.
