Abstract
Uncertainties in the structural parameters of structural control systems have to be taken into account to obtain optimal control strategies. For this purpose, the aim of this paper is to develop a Bayesian method to model parameter uncertainties with reliability methods as SORM to study the influence of design parameters on the reliability of the system. Numerical examples with a two-degree-of freedom structure show the application of the method.
