Study on Random Analysis Method and its Application to Structures
The evaluation of the reliability of structural systems is of extreme importance in structural design, mainly when the variables are random. A method is presented to efficiently assess the random response of stochastic structures. The article uses two-level sampling method to partial fiber element. First, the homogeneous random field of concrete and rebar can be created by modified Latin-hypercube sampling. Then section discretization method is adopted to assign fiber random variables of concrete section fiber. The algorithm is then used to analyze the random response of a concrete beam, and the result proves that the method is efficient.
