Computational Methods for Shakedown and Limit Reliability Analysis
In this chapter the computational system for the shakedown and limit analysis is presented. It is based upon an iterative min-max procedure proposed by Zwolinski and Bielawski. The system is called CYCLONE. Application to the realistic shakedown analysis problem of pressure valve is shown. Next, simulation methods of the reliability analysis are presented. A computational system is described which is composed of reliability analysis, response surface method, shakedown/limit analysis and FE analysis. It is able to solve the realistic shakedown and limit reliability analysis problems. The method is illustrated by an example of the shakedown and limit reliability analysis of high pressure chamber subjected to variable repeated pressure.
