Toelichting (Engels) In structural engineering, a distinction can be made between a structure’s resistance and its stress. A failure may then be defined as the event in which—due to deterioration—the resistance drops below the stress. This paper proposes a method to combine the two stochastic processes of deteriorating resistance and fluctuating load for computing the time-dependent reliability of a structural system. As deterioration is often uncertain and non-negative, it can best be regarded as a gamma process. A gamma process is a stochastic process with independent non-negative increments having a gamma distribution with identical scale parameter. The stress is assumed to be a stochastic process of random loads exceeding a certain threshold and occurring according to a Poisson process. The variability of the random loads is modelled by a peaks-over-threshold distribution (such as the generalised Pareto distribution). These stochastic processes of deterioration and load can be combined in a straightforward manner to perform a time-dependent reliability analysis

To support researchers to publish their research Open Access, deals have been negotiated with various publishers. Depending on the deal, a discount is provided for the author on the Article Processing Charges that need to be paid by the author to publish an article Open Access. A discount of 100% means that (after approval) the author does not have to pay Article Processing Charges.

For the approval of an Open Access deal for an article, the corresponding author of this article must be affiliated with Wageningen University & Research.
