SafeAndSlow¶

class
SafeAndSlow
(*args)¶ SafeAndSlow method.
 Available constructors:
SafeAndSlow(solver=ot.Brent())
SafeAndSlow(solver, maximumDistance, stepSize)
Parameters: solver :
Solver
Non linear solver used to research the intersection of the limit state function with the direction, on each segment of length stepSize, between the center of the space and maximumDistance (root research).
maximumDistance : positive float
Distance from the center of the standard space until which we research an intersection with the limit state function along each direction. By default, the maximum distance is equal to the value defined through the key RootStrategyImplementationDefaultMaximumDistance of the
ResourceMap
.stepSize : float
Length of each segment inside which the root research is performed. By default, the step size is equal to the value defined through the key RootStrategyImplementationDefaultStepSize of the
ResourceMap
.See also
Notes
The SafeAndSlow strategy is the following: for each direction, we go along the direction by step of length stepSize from the origin to the maximum distant point(at distance maximumDistance from the center of the standard space) and we check whether there is a sign changement on each segment so formed.
We go until the maximum distant point. Then, for all the segments where we detected the presence of a root, we research the root with the selected non linear solver. We evaluate the contribution to the failure probability of each segment.
If stepSize is small enough, this strategy garantees us to find all the roots in the direction and the contribution of this direction to the failure probability is precisely evaluated.
