First of all, thanks for your state of the art reliability-based algorithms. In particular, APCK-MCS.
Second, as mentioned in UserManual_Reliability, it is possible to apply specific options of PCK model using“.AKMCS.PCK.” command. As an example,
AKOpts.AKMCS.PCK.Kriging.Corr.Family = ‘Gaussian’;
is used in the “HAT example”. Besides, based on UserManual_Kriging, the term “Gaussian” can be substituted by other types of “.Kriging.Corr.Family” such as Matern-5_2.
Finally, I was wondering to know what are the other specific options of APCK-MCS reliability method using “.AKMCS.PCK.” command which can be used in the PCK form of an adaptive reliability-based approach?
