Abstract
An approach based on approximate concepts for reliability-based optimal design is presented. Limit-state functions are approximated explicitly in terms of system random variables. These approximations are then used in conjunction with a shooting Monte Carlo simulation to estimate system reliability. The overall optimization process is numerically efficient since it drastically reduces the number of real analyses required to obtain a near optimal design. An example problem is presented to illustrate the ideas set forth.
