### RESEARCH OF RELIABILITY OF A LONG-SPAN STRUCTURE EXPOSED TO RANDOM SEISMIC IMPACTS

Pages 56 - 61

The article covers the problem of assessment of structural reliability in the course of random seismic impacts. The authors apply the Monte Carlo method and the method of canonical decomposition to generate accelerograms, and explicit time integration methods, by taking account of physical, geometrical and structural nonlinearities. The research results were subjected to statistical post-processing, and the analysis revealed that the structure demonstrated its high reliability. Therefore, the authors believe that the proposed approaches can be used to solve reliability problems that constitute variable processes.
