Reliability Index Beta

This notebook compute the reliability index, failure probability and influence factors in level II, using the package 'Reliability'Level2. In this package those variables are determined through the algorithm 'Normal Tail Approxima tion as is explained in the book of Madsen et al. Methods of Structural Safety, pp. 94 and following. The failure function of the limit state must be defined and, also, the independent basic variables given by a matrix with a row for each variable with the kind of...
