Abstract

Aimed at the reliability problems of arch retaining structure with stochastic parameters, in consideration of the influences of the randomness of the structural parameters and loads, the concrete paper applies program building relevant arch retaining structural model. The simulation programs are based on the response surface method and Monte Carlo method hybrid simulation analysis method. The structure failure probability and the probability distribution of the maximum stress of arch retaining structure are obtained in this study: get the influence of different random parameters on the structural reliability of arch retaining structure. This method can offer a theoretical basis for roadway supporting structure analysis and design.

Keywords: Arch retaining structure, randomness, reliability, stochastic parameter.
