...) is first established. The contribution-degree analysis is then used to classify the input random variables into interacting and non-interacting ones. Thus, the high-dimensional integration of reliability analysis is separated into a low-dimensional integration and multiple one-dimensional integrations...

..., a volume minimization RBTO formulation is built for structures considering displacement or compliance reliability constraints. Second, an efficient decoupling scheme is proposed to turn the double-loop RBTO into a series of deterministic topology optimization and reliability analysis. For the reliability...
