Reliability Analysis of Symmetrical Columns with Eccentric Loading

Abstract

This paper presents the reliability of the symmetrical columns with eccentric loading about one and two axes due to the maximum intensity stress and minimum intensity stress. In this paper a new lifetime distribution is introduced which is obtained by compounding exponential and gamma distributions (named as Lindley Distribution [L D]). Hazard rate, Mean time to failure has been discussed. It is observed from the results that the Reliability is decreasing when the load and scale parameter (  are increasing. It is observed that the area of cross section increased from 1000mm2 to 10000mm2 caused the increasing of reliability from 0.50 to 0.93 at minimum intensity.

Keywords: Eccentric load., Hazard rate Mean time to Failure, Intensity stress, Lindley distribution, Reliability
