  • Kang, Won Hee (2011-05-25)
    The failure event of a structure or lifeline network is often described by a complex logical function of multiple component failure events. Despite significant advances in theories on reliability analysis of individual ...

  • Lee, Young Joo (2012-05-22)
    Fatigue is one of the main causes of structural failure. In fact, many structural systems such as bridges, offshore platforms, and aircraft are subjected to the risk of fatigue-induced failure caused by repeated loading ...

  • Bennett, R.M.; Ang, A.H-S. (University of Illinois Engineering Experiment Station. College of Engineering. University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign., 1983-09)
    The failure mode approach, based on ways in which a structure can fail, and the stable configuration approach, based on ways in which a structure can carry an applied load, were examined and developed for the determination ...

  • Quek, S-T.; Ang, A.H-S. (University of Illinois Engineering Experiment Station. College of Engineering. University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign., 1986-11)
    A practical approach for the reliability analysis of structural systems is presented. Approximations and simplifications to the theoretical stable configuration approach (SCA) are derived from the cut-set formulation ...

  • Wen, Y.K.; Chen, H-C. (University of Illinois Engineering Experiment Station. College of Engineering. University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign., 1986-08)
    Structural reliability under multiple hazards is investigated. In the first part, the reliability of structural systems is studied with emphasis on the consideration of load sequence, load path and progressive failure ...
