Hsein Juang Professor, Glenn Dept. of Civil Engineering, Clemson University, Clemson, USA James R. Martin, II Professor, Glenn Dept. of Civil Engineering, Clemson University, Clemson, USA Jie Zhang Associate Professor, Department of Geotechnical Engineering, Tongji University, Shanghai, China ABSTRACT: This paper presents an efficient method to compute the failure probability of a geotechnical system, which is based upon numerical integration of the cumulative distribution function (CDF) of the performance function. This new method is inspired by the concept of the vertex method often used in conjunction with fuzzy sets theory; however, new approach is taken to account for the probabilistic feature of the uncertain input parameters. In the new method, only the deterministic analysis of the system performance and the evaluation of the joint probability of the uncertain input parameters are required. The proposed new method is a deterministic approach, easy to follow and apply; no Monte Carlo simulation is required. Through an example study of a shallow strip foundation, the effectiveness and the efficiency of the proposed new method, in terms of the accuracy and the computational effort, respectively, are demonstrated. 1. INTRODUCTION The failure probability of a geotechnical system (Pf) may be computed as a multi-fold probability integral, expressed as follows: ( ) 0Pr ( ) 0 ( )f gP g f d XX X X (1) where X = [X1, X2, , Xn]T, is a vector of the uncertain input parameters X1, X2, , and Xn, in which the subscript n is the number of the uncertain input parameters; f(X) is the joint probability density function (PDF) of the uncertain parameters X; g(X) is the performance function, which is formulated such that g(X) 0 denotes the failure of the geotechnical system; and, Pr ( ) 0g X is the conditional probability of g(X) 0. Difficulty in evaluating the multi-fold probability integral in Eq. (1) has led to many approximation methods, such as mean value first order second moment method (Ang and Tang 2007), advanced first order second moment method or first order reliability method (Hasofer and Lind 1974; Melchers 1987; Lee and Kwak 1987), and point estimate-based moment method (Zhao and Ono 2000). Although these methods have been widely applied in engineering practices, there is room for improvement in a few aspects. First, the accuracy of these approximate methods may be a problem if the performance function is highly nonlinear and/or high-dimensional. Second, the computation of the partial derivative of the performance function may be a challenge, especially in the situations where the system performance can only be evaluated using the numerical methods such as finite element method (FEM). Third, since the distribution of the performance function is approximated with its moments of finite order, the evaluation of the moments may introduce 12th International Conference on Applications of Statistics and Probability in Civil Engineering, ICASP12 Vancouver, Canada, July 12-15, 2015 2 errors. Fourth, in search for the minimum reliability index (), a local minimum, rather than the global minimum, may be possible. The failure probability is related to the reliability index as follows: ( )fP (2) where () is the cumulative distribution function (CDF) of the standard normal variable. To avoid the shortcomings of these methods, the sampling method such as Monte Carlo simulation (MCS) may be used alternatively. Although MCS could yield a more accurate determination of the failure probability of the geotechnical system, the required number of simulations of the system performance may be too large, especially for a system of low failure probability. In many cases, the application of MCS may be limited due to its prohibitive computational demand. The low computational efficiency of MCS becomes more profound when it is applied to a system, the performance of which can only be analyzed using numerical methods. In order to improve the computational efficiency of MCS, various sampling techniques have been studied, such as Latin hypercube sampling (Florian 1992), importance sampling (Grooteman 2011), and subset simulation (Au and Beck 2001; Ching et al. 2005). It is noted that while the computational efficiency of MCS can be greatly improved through the use of these sampling techniques, the knowledge of advanced probability theory and programing skills can be a barrier to the practicing engineer. In this paper, a new method, based upon the numerical integration of the CDF of the performance function, is created for computing the failure probability of a geotechnical system. Here, the performance function and the joint probabilities of the integration grids, through the vertex combinations of the uncertain input parameters, are computed to construct the CDF of the performance function. The new method is formulated in a deterministic manner, which does not require the computation of the partial derivative and the moments of the performance function, and nor does it require an iterative process to minimize the reliability index. Thus, the proposed new method is easy to apply. As will be shown later, the new method can produce results that agree very well with those obtained from MCS, and yet, it is much more efficient. 2. NEW METHOD TO COMPUTE THE FAILURE PROBABILITY Based upon the CDF of the performance function, the failure probability of a system is expressed as follows: ( ) 0fP F g X (3) where F[g(X)] is the CDF of the performance function g(X), the detailed construction of which is formulated later. 2.1. Numerical integration of the CDF of the performance function The analytical (or direct) integration of the CDF of the performance function, F[g(X)], can be a challenge if the performance function is highly nonlinear and/or high dimensional. Thus, the numerical integration method is employed herein to construct the CDF of the performance function. Here, each and every uncertain input parameter is first discretized into a set of discrete vertices using the -cut concept of fuzzy sets theory (e.g., Dong and Wong 1987; Juang et al. 1998; Gong et al. 2014&2015). The obtained vertices are then combined to represent the domain of the uncertain input parameters. Finally, the CDF of the performance function is constructed with the computed performance function and joint probabilities of the vertex combinations of the uncertain input parameters. In short, the CDF of the performance function may be established with following steps: 1. Discretize the truncated standard normal variable of [-5, 5] into a set of discrete vertices using the -cut concept of fuzzy sets theory. For example, a set of discrete vertices, denoted as {x0, x1-, x1+, x2-, x2+, , x(m-1)-, x(m-1)+}, is obtained if the number of -cut levels is m. Plotted in Figure 1 are the resulting vertices of the standard normal variable x1. As such, the distribution of the uncertain 12th International Conference on Applications of Statistics and Probability in Civil Engineering, ICASP12 Vancouver, Canada, July 12-15, 2015 3 parameter x1 is represented with a set of discrete vertices: [x10, f(x10)], [x11-, f(x11-)], and [x11+, f(x11+)] for m = 2; [x10, f(x10)], [x11-, f(x11-)], [x11+, f(x11+)], [x12-, f(x12-)], and [x12+, f(x12+)] for m = 3; or, [x10, f(x10)], [x11-, f(x11-)], [x11+, f(x11+)], [x13-, f(x13-)], [x13+, f(x13+)], [x14-, f(x14-)], and [x14+, f(x14+)] for m = 4, as shown in Figure 1. Here, the truncated range is set at [-5, 5] so that the probability of the uncertain input parameters falling outside of this range is less than 5.73310-7, a relatively low probability that can be ignored. Figure 1: -cut concept of the uncertain input parameter. 2. At each -cut level, compute the vertices of the uncertain input parameters in the original distribution spaces of the uncertain input parameters, denoted as {Xi0, Xi1-, Xi1+, Xi2-, Xi2+, , Xi(m-1)-, Xi(m-1)+}, using the transformation that was suggested in Low and Tang (2007). 3. Combine the vertices of the uncertain input parameters that obtained in Step 2. Note that the number of the vertex combinations is (2m-1)n, where m is the number of -cut levels and n is the number of uncertain parameters. 4. Calculate the performance function, g(Xi), and the joint probability, f(Xi), of each vertex combination of the uncertain parameters, Xi. This process is repeated for all (2m-1)n vertex combinations of the uncertain parameters. 5. Construct the CDF of the performance function, F[g(X)], which is expressed as: ( ) ( )( ) ( )g gF g f d Y XX Y Y (4) where Y = [X1, X2, , Xn]T. Given the (2m-1)n pairs of g(Xi) and f(Xi) values obtained in Step 4, the integral in Eq. (4) can be approximated with: ( ) ( )( )( ) ( )iig gifF g fX XXX X (5) Then, the failure probability of the system, Pf, is obtained using linear interpolation. Note that in the evaluation of the joint probability, f(Xi), of the vertex combination of the uncertain input parameters, Xi, the standard normal space and the standard normal variables, in terms of {x0, x1-, x1+, x2-, x2+, , x(m-1)-, x(m-1)+}, should be used. Further, the correlation between (or among) the uncertain input parameters should be considered, in which the original correlation coefficient should be modified in line with the equivalent normal transformation, as suggested in Der Kiureghian and Liu (1986). 2.2. Optimization of the number of cut levels of the uncertain input parameters It is noted with the increase of the number of cut levels (m), the CDF of the performance function can be more accurately constructed and thus the failure probability. The CDF of the performance function and the failure probability of the system would converge to the true value (or analytical solution) if the selected number of cut levels (m) is sufficiently large. However, an increase in m beyond some certain level can lead to a drastic increase in the computational effort. Here, the optimal number of the cut levels (m) can be determined with following procedures: 1. Set the initial m as 2, denoted m0 = 2, and compute the initial failure probability of the system, denoted as Pf0, using the procedures in Section 2.1. 2. Set a new m as (m0 + 1), denoted as m1 = m0+1, and compute the corresponding failure probability of the system, denoted as Pf1. 3. Set a new m of (m1 + 1), denoted as m2 = m1+1, and compute the corresponding failure Standard normal variable,x1PDF5/3 5/3 5/3 5/3 5/3 5/35/2 5/ 5/2 5/25 5 x11- x10 x11+ x13-x12-x14- x14+ x12+ x13+(i.e., -5) (i.e., 5)(i.e., 0)12th International Conference on Applications of Statistics and Probability in Civil Engineering, ICASP12 Vancouver, Canada, July 12-15, 2015 4 probability of the system, denoted as Pf2. Then, the relative variation (or error) of the computed failure probability is computed as follows: 0 111100%f ffP PP (6) 1 222100%f ffP PP (7) where 1 and 2 are the relative variation of the computed failure probability with respect to the number of cut levels m1 and m2, respectively. 4. Determine whether the number of cut levels m2 is acceptable with the following acceptance rule: if 1 < 1.0% and 2 < 1.0%, then m2 is acceptable and the failure probability of the system is Pf2, denoted as m = m2 and Pf = Pf2; otherwise, set m1 = m2, Pf0 = Pf1, and Pf1 = Pf2, and then go back to Step 3. The convergence criterion, in terms of 1 < 1.0% and 2 < 1.0%, is used herein only for illustration purposes. The selection of convergence criterion is problem-specific; for example, 5.0% may be acceptable in other problems. Note that in the construction of the CDF of the performance function, F[g(X)], at a given number of cut levels m (m > 2), the results obtained at the number of cut levels of (m -1) should be utilized. In other words, only the new vertex combinations of the uncertain input parameters that are formed at the current number of cut levels need to be analyzed, while the vertex combinations that has been analyzed previously are not required to be studied. In reference to Figure 2, for a system with 2 uncertain parameters, 9 vertex combinations of these parameters need to be studied at the level of m = 2; 16 new vertex combinations need to be analyzed at the level of m = 3; and, 40 new vertex combinations need to be studied at the level of m = 4. However, 25 pairs of the performance function and joint probability values are utilized to establish the CDF of the performance function for m = 3; and, 65 pairs of the performance function and joint probability values are utilized to establish the CDF of the performance function for m = 4.

ILLUSTRATIVE EXAMPLE To illustrate the effectiveness and the efficiency of the proposed new method in computing the failure probability of a geotechnical system, a shallow strip foundation is examined. 3.1. Bearing capacity of the shallow strip foundation The ultimate bearing capacity of the shallow strip foundation is evaluated with the following expression: ult 1 20.5 c qq BN cN DN (8) where B is the width of the foundation; D is the depth of the foundation relative to the ground level; 1 is the unit weight of the soil under the foundation base; 2 is unit weight of the soil above the foundation base; c is the effective cohesion; and, Nc, Nq, and N are the bearing capacity factors, which are estimated as follows: 1.8 1 tanqN N (9) 2 tantan 4 2qN e (10) 1 cotc qN N (11) where is the effective friction angle. No ground water table is considered herein for simplicity. X1X2Vertex combination at m = 2New combination at m = 3New combination at m = 412th International Conference on Applications of Statistics and Probability in Civil Engineering, ICASP12 Vancouver, Canada, July 12-15, 2015 5 The performance function of this geotechnical problem is formulated as follows: load ultg q q (12) where qload is the load effect. In this example, the geometry of the foundation, the load on the foundation, and the unit weight of the soil are treated as deterministic input parameters: qload = 300 kPa, B = 1.5 m, D = 1.2 m, and 1 = 2 = 17.3 kN/m3. The effective cohesion and friction angle are taken as uncertain input parameters. The mean and the standard deviation of the effective cohesion are 14.4 kPa and 1.7 kPa, respectively (i.e., c = 14.4 kPa and c = 1.7 kPa). The mean and the standard deviation of the effective friction angle are 20 and 1.2, respectively (i.e., = 20 and = 1.2). The effective cohesion and the effective friction are negatively correlated, c, = -0.5. Note that the parameters setting of this example is based upon Cherubini (2000). 3.2. Reliability analysis of the bearing capacity using the proposed new method Following the procedures of the proposed new method that outlined in Section 2.2, the failure probability and the reliability index of the shallow foundation are readily computed. The obtained failure probability is Pf = 1.66110-3 and the corresponding reliability index is = 2.936, whereas, the “exact” failure probability obtained with 1,000,000MCS runs is PfMCS = 1.66610-3 and the corresponding reliability index is MCS = 2.935. Here, the relative error of the reliability (), defined below, is only 0.03%. MCSMCS100% (13) Figure 3 shows the convergence of the analysis results, in terms of failure probability (Pf), and the relative variation of the failure probability using the proposed new method with the adopted number of cut levels (m) and the number of trials. As can be seen, the relative variation of the computed failure probability decreases with the number of cut levels of the uncertain input parameters (Figure 3a) and the number of trials (or simulations) of the system performance (Figure 3b). As such, the computed (a) Relative variation versus number of cut levels (b) Relative variation versus number of trials (c) Failure probability versus number of cut levels (d) Failure probability versus number of trials 5 10 15 2000.20.40.60.811.2Number of level, mError of failure probability, 0 2000 4000 6000 800000.20.40.60.811.2Number of trialsError of failure probability, 5 10 15 2000.0020.0040.0060.0080.010.012Number of cut level, mFailure probability, Pf0 2000 4000 6000 800000.0020.0040.0060.0080.010.012Number of trialsFailure probability, Pf12th International Conference on Applications of Statistics and Probability in Civil Engineering, ICASP12 Vancouver, Canada, July 12-15, 2015 6 Figure 3: Convergence of the analysis results using the proposed new method. failure probability converges with the number of cut levels (Figure 3c) and the number of trials for the system performance (Figure 3d). For this example, the optimal number of cut levels for the set of uncertain input parameters is 19 and the number of trials for the system performance is 7,321. Actually, the variation of the computed failure probability is relatively low when the number of cut levels is greater than 10 (i.e., m > 10) and the number of trials (simulations) for the system performance is greater than 1,073, as demonstrated in Figure 3.

Further plotted in Figure 4(a) are the CDFs of the performance function that are obtained with different numbers of cut levels of the uncertain input parameters (indicated herein by the number of trials for the system performance). It shows that with the increase of the number of cut levels, the obtained CDF of the performance function converges. As noted, there is little difference between the CDF of the performance function obtained with 10 cut levels (represented with the number of trials of 1,073) and that obtained with 19 cut levels (represented with the number of trials of 7,321). Further, the CDF of the performance function obtained with 19 cut levels agrees well with that obtained using 1,000,000 samples of MCS (Figure 4b). Therefore, the effectiveness and efficiency of the proposed new method are clearly demonstrated. (a) Pf is lognormally distributed (b) Pf is truncated normally distributed Figure 5.

Note that in this paper, the sample number of 1,000,000 is selected such that the coefficient variation of the failure probability obtained with MCS, defined below (Eq. 14), is deemed low and negligible.

It is well recognized that some variation of the failure probability obtained with MCS is expected. Thus 1,000 repeats of MCS are carried out herein to derive a 95% confidence level of the failure probability. Figure 5 shows the comparison between the failure probability obtained with the proposed new method and the 95% confidence level of the failure probability obtained with 1,000 repeats of MCS. The failure probability is assumed to be lognormally distributed in Figure 5(a), while the truncated normal distribution is assumed in Figure 5(b). Figure 5 shows that the variation of the failure probability obtained with MCS (indicated by the bars of the 95% confidence intervals) decreases with the number of MCS samples; while the mean of the failure probability obtained with MCS agrees well with that obtained with the new method. Therefore, compared with MCS, the proposed method is more effective (i.e., little variation/uncertainty) in evaluating the failure probability. The new method also converges quicker. 3.3. Further assessment of the proposed new method In order to investigate the influence of the variation of the uncertain input parameters and the correlation between (or among) the uncertain input parameters, different parameters settings are adopted for this geotechnical problem and the analysis results are listed in Table 1. This parameters setting is based on Cherubini (2000). The results show that while the two methods yield approximately the same reliability index values for the shallow strip foundation examined in different parameters settings, the proposed method requires much less number of trials than does the MCS. Thus, the effectiveness (i.e., accuracy) and the efficiency (i.e., computational saving) of the new method in evaluating the failure probability are not influenced by different parameter settings. Therefore, the conclusions reached previously about the proposed method are further confirmed. In fact, the effectiveness and the efficiency of the proposed new method are also not affected by the distribution of the uncertain input parameters, the nonlinearity of the performance function, and the form of the performance function. These features are addressed in an ongoing study at Clemson University. 12th International Conference on Applications of Statistics and Probability in Civil Engineering, ICASP12 Vancouver, Canada, July 12-15, 2015 8 4. CONCLUSIONS Based upon the results presented, the effectiveness (i.e., accuracy) and the efficiency (i.e., computational effort) of the proposed new method are established. This finding is not influenced by the variation of the uncertain input parameters and the correlation between (or among) the uncertain input parameters. Apart from the failure probability of the system, the CDF of the performance function can also be effectively and efficiently constructed using the proposed new method. Obviously, the proposed new method is not perfect. A potential limitation of the proposed method is that the computational efficiency may be reduced when the problem involves a large number of uncertain input parameters, which is the nature of the vertex methods. Indeed, the new method needs further investigations but it shows a potential. 5. REFERENCES Ang, A.H.S., and Tang, W.H. (2007).

Description | This paper presents an efficient method to compute the failure probability of a geotechnical system, which is based upon numerical integration of the cumulative distribution function (CDF) of the performance function. This new method is inspired by the concept of the vertex method often used in conjunction with fuzzy sets theory; however, new approach is taken to account for the probabilistic feature of the uncertain input parameters. In the new method, only the deterministic analysis of the system performance and the evaluation of the joint probability of the uncertain input parameters are required. The proposed new method is a deterministic approach, easy to follow and apply; no Monte Carlo simulation is required. Through an example study of a shallow strip foundation, the effectiveness and the efficiency of the proposed new method, in terms of the accuracy and the computational effort, respectively, are demonstrated. |
