A simple stressed beam¶
We consider a simple beam stressed by a traction load F at both sides.
The geometry is supposed to be deterministic; the diameter D is equal to:
By definition, the yield stress is the load divided by the surface. Since the surface is , the stress is:
Failure occurs when the beam plastifies, i.e. when the axial stress gets larger than the yield stress:
where is the strength.
Therefore, the limit state function is:
for any .
The value of the parameter is such that:
which leads to the equation:
We consider the following distribution functions.
Variable |

R |

where and are the mean and the variance of .
The failure probability is:
The exact is
