Abstract

Several reliability methods available in literature combined with various modelling approaches are compared in this current work in the context of two experimental reinforced concrete (RC) beams. One beam failed in bending while the other beam failed in shear due to diagonal tension. The structural behaviour is described by analytical models and nonlinear finite element models. The changes in predicted reliability of these structures with increasing loads are evaluated by different reliability methods and the results are compared.
