Abstract
In this article, structural probabilistic and non-probabilistic reliability have been evaluated and compared under big data condition. Firstly, the big data is collected via structural monitoring and analysis. Big data is classified into different types according to the regularities of the distribution of data. The different stresses which have been subjected by the structure are used in this paper. Secondly, the structural interval reliability and probabilistic prediction models are established by using the stress-strength interference theory under big data of random loads after the stresses and structural strength are comprehensively considered. Structural reliability is computed by using various stress types, and the minimum reliability is determined as structural reliability. Finally, the advantage and disadvantage of the interval reliability method and probability reliability method are shown by using three examples. It has been shown that the proposed methods are feasible and effective.
