Aseismic Reliability and First-Passage Failure

  • Rudolf Grossmayer
Part of the International Centre for Mechanical Sciences book series (CISM, volume 225)

Abstract

The problem of aseismic reliability is one among various problems within the field of earthquake engineering, but one of greatest inportance in practice. Engineers are expected to design structures that are capable to withstand any earthquake, that may be expected to happen at a given site. This is often an unsolvable task, particularly so, if certain restrictions like cost limitations, have to be kept in mind.
