Mathematical Models for Structural Reliability Analysis offers mathematical models for describing load and material properties in solving structural engineering problems. Examples are provided, demonstrating how the models are implemented, and the limitations of the models are clearly stated. Analytical solutions are also discussed, and methods are clearly distinguished from models. The authors explain both theoretical models and practical applications in a clear, concise, and readable fashion.Shinozuka proposed in  to make expansions around this point for non-normal p.d.f.a#39;s. If we consider a failure domain F in a space of non-normal random variables and its transformed domain T(ZF), where T(x) is defined in equation ( 5.55), anbsp;...
