Question: the axial load on a steel member in an offshore...

Question details

The axial load on a steel member in an offshore structure is given by E+G where P is the total axial load, E is the axial load induced by environmental loads (wind and waves) and G is the axial load induced by, gravity (e.g., the weight of the structure). The axial capacity of the steel member is given by C dFr where C is the axial capacity, FY is the yield stress of the steel, and a is the cross- sectional area of the member. E, G and FY are not known with certainty and will be modeled as random variables with the following distributions: a 15 kips Normal Distribution u 50 kips Normal Distribution 25 kips Normal Distribution 40 ksi The area, a, is considered to be a deterministic variable (i.e., there is no uncertainty in its value).
