Reliability approach in spacecraft structures

Abstract : This paper presents an application of the probabilistic approach with reliability assessment on a spacecraft structure. The adopted strategy uses meta-modeling with first and second order polynomial functions. This method aims at minimizing computational time while giving relevant results. The first part focuses on computational tools employed in the strategy development. The second part presents a spacecraft application. The purpose is to highlight benefits of the probabilistic approach compared with the current deterministic one. From examples of reliability assessment we show some advantages which could be found in industrial applications.
