Buckling Loads of Two-Layer Composite Columns with Interlayer Slip and Stochastic Material Properties

This paper presents an efficient stochastic buckling model for studying the structural reliability of layered composite columns with interlayer slip between the layers and random material and loading parameters. The model is based on the exact buckling model, response surface method, and Monte Carlo simulations. The probability of failure is investigated for a different number of random variables, sample points, and various degrees of response surfaces. The results show that the probability of failure is considerably affected by the type (deterministic or probabilistic) of the loading and its distribution.
