Originální abstrakt

A new general inverse reliability analysis approach based on artificial neural networks is proposed. An inverse reliability analysis is a problem of obtaining design parameters corresponding to a specified reliability (reliability index or theoretical failure probability). Design parameters can be deterministic or they can be associated with random variables. The aim is to generally solve not only single design parameter cases but also multiple parameter problems with given multiple reliability constraints. Inverse analysis is based on the coupling of a stochastic simulation of the Monte Carlo type (the small-sample simulation method Latin hypercube sampling) and an artificial neural network. The validity and efficiency of this approach is shown using numerical examples with single as well as multiple reliability constraints and with single as well as multiple design parameters, and with independent basic random variables as well as random variables with prescribed statistical correlations.
