Abstract
Based on the rapid simulation of Markov Chain on samples in failure region, a novel method of reliability analysis combining Monte Carlo Markov Chain (MCMC) with random forest algorithm was proposed. Firstly, a series of samples distributing around limit state function are generated by MCMC. Then, the samples were taken as training data to establish the random forest model. Afterwards, Monte Carlo simulation was used to evaluate the failure probability. Finally, examples demonstrate the proposed method possesses higher computational efficiency and accuracy.
