Article Preview

A novel method based on the mutative scale chaos optimization algorithm is proposed to solve the robust reliability index of non-probabilistic reliability model. Compared with the basic chaos optimization method, this novel method can minimize searching area of optimization variable and change the adjustable parameters of next search stage for improving the optimization performance. The proposed optimization algorithm is more efficient and has smaller computational complexity in solving robust reliability index. The feasibility and efficiency of the proposed method are demonstrated by two examples.
