    Structural Interval Reliability Algorithm Based on Bernstein Polynomials and Evidence Theory

    Xu Zhang1, Jianchao Ni2, Juxi Hu3,*, Weisi Chen4

    Computer Systems Science and Engineering, Vol.46, No.2, pp. 1947-1960, 2023, DOI:10.32604/csse.2023.035118

    Abstract Structural reliability is an important method to measure the safety performance of structures under the influence of uncertain factors. Traditional structural reliability analysis methods often convert the limit state function to the polynomial form to measure whether the structure is invalid. The uncertain parameters mainly exist in the form of intervals. This method requires a lot of calculation and is often difficult to achieve efficiently. In order to solve this problem, this paper proposes an interval variable multivariate polynomial algorithm based on Bernstein polynomials and evidence theory to solve the structural reliability problem with cognitive… More >

    Conventionally, the reliability of a web portal is validated with generalized conventional methods, but they fail to provide the desired results. Therefore, we need to include other quality factors that affect reliability such as usability for improving the reliability in addition to the conventional reliability testing. Actually, the primary objectives of web portals are to provide interactive integration of multiple functions confirming diverse requirements in an efficient way. In this paper, we employ testing profiles to measure the reliability through software operational profile, input space profile and usability profile along with qualitative measures of reliability

    Ting Wang1,#, Jin Kuang1,#, Fabian Herold2, Alyx Taylor3, Sebastian Ludyga4, Zhihao Zhang1, Arthur F. Kramer5,6, Liye Zou1,*

    International Journal of Mental Health Promotion, Vol.25, No.1, pp. 127-138, 2023, DOI:10.32604/ijmhp.2022.022504

    Abstract The rising prevalence of physical inactivity is in all age groups (e.g., in college students) a major public health issue as not meeting the recommended minimum amount of regular physical activity is linked to adverse health events. Vice versa, there is mounting evidence that achieving the recommended amount of regular physical activity is a vital element to prevent chronic diseases, but there is often an insufficient adherence to planned and structured forms of physical activity (i.e., physical exercises). In this context, there is a large body of evidence indicating that exercise adherence is, among other… More >

    Rong Yuan1, Ruitao Chen2, Haiqing Li3,*, Wenke Yang1, Xiaoxiao Li1

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.135, No.3, pp. 2331-2347, 2023, DOI:10.32604/cmes.2023.023788

    Abstract Wind power is a kind of important green energy. Thus, wind turbines have been widely utilized around the world. Wind turbines are composed of many important components. Among these components, the failure rate of the transmission system is relatively high in wind turbines. It is because the components are subjected to aerodynamic loads for a long time. In addition, its inertial load will result in fatigue fracture, wear and other problems. In this situation, wind turbines have to be repaired at a higher cost. Moreover, the traditional reliability methods are difficult to deal with the More >

    Qiang Qin1,2,*, Xiaolei Cao1, Shengpeng Zhang1

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.135, No.2, pp. 1457-1480, 2023, DOI:10.32604/cmes.2023.022078

    Abstract In this work, an improved active kriging method based on the AK-IS and truncated importance sampling (TIS) method is proposed to efficiently evaluate structural reliability. The novel method called AWK-TIS is inspired by AK-IS and RBF-GA previously published in the literature. The innovation of the AWK-TIS is that TIS is adopted to lessen the sample pool size significantly, and the whale optimization algorithm (WOA) is employed to acquire the optimal Kriging model and the most probable point (MPP). To verify the performance of the AWK-TIS method for structural reliability, four numerical cases which are utilized More >
