Description

An algorithm for the First Order Reliability Method (FORM) 
1. Identify the distributions of your basic random variables X (typically marginal PDFs or CDFs, as well as correlations or joint distributions) 
2. Decide which method is appropriate for transforming your basic random variables X into standard normal random variables U (using one of the four cases discussed). 
3. Use the Hasofer-Lind Rackwitz-Feissler algorithm to find the design point u*.
