Abstract

We describe simulation approaches suitable for the full probabilistic reliability assessment of a concrete beam by the finite element method. We compare the direct Monte Carlo method with a variance reduction technique based on Importance Sampling. A material model for the concrete beam is presented. The obtained results of the reliability assessment are discussed.
