The paper describes several parts of complex stochastic modelling of precast prestressed concrete girders failing in shear. Experimental studies have been performed on scaled elements as well as on full-scale girders. These tests serve as basis for developing the deterministic nonlinear model and subsequent probabilistic assessment of structural resistance. The combination of nonlinear finite element method and probabilistic analysis is a strong tool for the realistic modelling of structures, but it is extremely time consuming, especially when 3D nonlinear model with many input random parameters is analysed. Therefore, sensitivity analyses have been performed and a surrogate model has been developed. Safety formats are utilized and compared with fully probabilistic approach to determine design value of ultimate capacity of girders.
