    • A new unbiased metamodel method for efficient reliability analysis 

      Xue, Guofeng; Dai, Hongzhe; Zhang, Hao; Wang, Wei
      Published 2017-07-01
      Metamodel method is widely used in structural reliability analysis. A main limitation of this method is that it is difficult or even impossible to quantify the model uncertainty caused by the metamodel approximation. This ...
