E4.8 (Cont’d) P(failure) = P(R < S) = P(R – S < 0) = P(X < 0) R = N( R, R R ) where R = 1.5 S = 1.5 x 14.1 = R = 0.15 R = N(21.15, 3.17) X = = 7.05 X = = 3.36 P(F) = = (-2.1) = X = R – S R – design capacity 1.5 – design safety factor, SF

If the target is P(F) = R = ? and assume R = 0.15 Recall: X = R X = (0.15 R ) = -1 (0.001) = – 3.09 R = 20.8 – 2.95 R R 2 R 2 – 2.95 R = 0 R = or 26.9 Set: P(F) = = Since R should be larger than 21.5 R = 26.9 Check R = P(F) = = (3.09) 1.0

17
E4.10 (Cont’d) (b) Maximum allowable settlement = 2.5 in., reliability against excessive settlement = ? (c) If an expense of $100 is spent so that the c.o.v. of M can be reduced to 5% for getting better information. Would you spend this money? Assume the damage cost is $50,000 for the exceedance of the maximum allowable settlement.

19
Assume C 0 is the initial cost of construction. Then, the expected cost of the first design (Not spending $100) is The expected cost of the second design is E(C 1 ) < E(C 2 ) It is better for not spending the money to gather more information on M.

The occurrence of thunderstorms in a town in Texas follow Poisson process during each season: Winter: Oct – March Summer: April – Sept 21 – year record 73 storms in winters 340 storms in summers 340 storms in summers Determine: P(4 storms during three month of March, April & May) = ?

21
Mean rates for each summer month, S = Similarly, W = Z = X + Y Poisson with parameters m Z = m X + m Y = 2.7 1 = 5.98 Recall Poisson Distribution X

22
Central Limit Theorem S will approach a normal distribution regardless the individual probability distribution of X i if N is large enough

24
(c) T = total mean = E 1 + E 2 +…+ E 124 E(T) = 124 0 = 0 Var(T) = Var(E 1 ) + Var(E 2 ) +…+ Var(E 124 ) = 124Var(E) = 124 1/3 = T = 6.43 Distribution of T Normal (C.L.T) P( T < 0.01% of 2 miles) (b) P( E < 0.01% of length of segment) (area under rectangular curve) Assume s.i. By making more measurements, the % error is decreasing P(within given tolerance limit)

25
Reliability Computation Suppose R denotes resistance or capacity S denotes load or demand Satisfactory Performance = {S < R} P S = P(S < R) and P f = 1 - P S Case 1: If R, S are normal where Z = S – R and Z = S 2 + R 2 Case 2: If R, S are lognormal where Z = S – R and Z = S 2 + R 2

26
Case 3: If R is discrete, S is continuous Example on Case 3 S = N(5, 1) r P(R = r)

27
Reliability – Based Design Observe for Case 1 in which R and S are both Normal If P S Reliability = Reliability index = -1 (P S ) Design R = S + S 2 + R 2

28
Example: S = N(5, 2) R = N( R, 1) R = ? Require P f = or P S = = -1 (0.999) = 3.1 Design R = = 11.93

29
Moments of function of R.V. In most cases, we can’t derive f y (y) easily. Let us try to determine mean and Var of Y. Let us try to determine mean and Var of Y. ?

30
Y = aX + b E(Y) = aE(X) + b Why? E(X) 1 For linear case

31
Y = a 1 X 1 + a 2 X 2 E(Y) = a 1 E(X 1 ) + a 2 E(X 2 ) = a 1 2 a 2 2 a 1 a 2 1 2 if X 1 and X 2 are s.i. = 0 Var(Y) = a 1 2 a 2 2 2 2 Extension ( not only true for Normal)

32
Mean and Variance of general functions Recall we have formula for E(aX + b) and E(a 1 X 1 + a 2 X 2 +…+ a n X n ) but how about a general non-linear function: Y = g(X) E[g(X)] = ? Var[g(X)] = ? Rigorous method However computations may be complex, also we may not have f X ( x ). X X X

33
First order approximation: g( X ) g’( X ) (X – X ) X g(X) XX X Taylor Series Approximation x - x Var(X) …

34
Observe validity of linear approx depends on: 1) Function g is almost linear, i.e. small curvature 2) x is small, i.e. distribution of X is narrow

35
Example If K = 400 ; K = 200 If M = 100

36
K M M What if M is also random? M = 100; M = 20 then

37
Observe contribution of uncertainties from 2 components: Sensitivity factor + Var(X i ) How to invest money for research? a) Identify R.V. X i with major contributions to uncertainties b) Reduce sensitivity factor c) Reduce Var(X i )

38
In general Y = g(X 1, X 2, …, X n ) E(Y) = g( 1, 2, …, n ) Propagation of uncertainties

39
Uses 1. Easy calculations 2. Compare relative contributions of uncertainties – allocation of resource 3. Combine individual contributions of uncertainties

40
Comparison of 1 st and 2 nd Order Approximation Observe 2 nd order approximation take the 2 nd order term Requires: 1. Small Var of X i ’s, e.g. in surveying measurements 2. Function approx. linear 2 nd order term Compare this to 1 st order E(Y) = g( X )

41
Check 2nd order term for e.g. Sufficiently close to 2.0 Despite of k 1/2 & k is fairly large

42
Review on Chapter 4 1. Consider Y = g(X) or Y = g(X 1, X 2, …, X n ) 2. Given distribution of X or X i distribution of Y can be obtained by a) Theoretical derivation e.g. f Y (y) = f X (g -1 ) (dg -1 /dy) b) Formula for typical cases 3. Model of sum – Normal Model of product – Lognormal 4. C.L.T. – Generalize (3.) regardless of distribution of X or X i 5. Reliability evaluation – P(X < Y) for various cases 6. Y = g(X) or Y = g(X 1, X 2, …, X n ) Given mean & Var of X determine mean & Var of Y a) exact for linear cases b) approx. for general cases
