Abstract:This is a collection of discussion and opinons based on a forum spinsered by Committee 114, Research and Development, and Committee 348, Structural Safety, at ACI 1973 fall convention in Ottawa, Ont., Canada. Realizing the variablity in the parameters utilized, accounting for it, and collecting additional data toward an increasing degree of precision are courses of action proposed by proponents of probablity. The authors reviewed the history, accomplishements, and possible directions to take, as well as requirements for probablistic approach and model analysis.
