Structural reliability analysis for p-boxes using multi-level meta-models

Abstract : In modern engineering, computer simulations are a popular tool to analyse, design, and optimize systems. Furthermore, concepts of uncertainty and the related reliability analysis and robust design are of increasing importance. Hence, an efficient quantification of uncertainty is an important aspect of the engineer's workflow. In this context, the characterization of uncertainty in the input variables is crucial. In this paper, input variables are modelled by probability-boxes, which account for both aleatory and epistemic uncertainty. Two types of probability-boxes are distinguished: free and parametric (also called distributional) p-boxes. The use of probability-boxes generally increases the complexity of structural reliability analyses compared to traditional probabilistic input models. In this paper, the complexity is handled by two-level approaches which use Kriging meta-models with adaptive experimental designs at different levels of the structural reliability analysis. For both types of probability-boxes, the extensive use of meta-models allows for an efficient estimation of the failure probability at a limited number of runs of the performance function. The capabilities of the proposed approaches are illustrated through a benchmark analytical function and two realistic engineering problems.
