Applications of Statistics and Probability in Civil Engineering
The buffered failure probability is an alternative measure of reliability that offers several theoretical, practical, and computational advantages over the traditional failure probability. It is handled with relative ease in design optimization problems, accounts for the degree of violation of a performance threshold, and is more conservative than the failure probability. This paper examines the difference between the buffered failure probability and the failure probability in several examplesdoi:10.1201/b11332-24 fatcat:douvh2yfmrgxzee64ys5ep6gp4
