This paper presents a new univariate method employing the most probable point as the reference point for predicting failure probability of structural and mechanical systems subject to random loads, material properties, and geometry. The method involves novel decomposition at the most probable point that facilitates a univariate approximation of a general multivariate function, response surface generation...
