    Reliability methods for probability evaluation of structural failure involve the solution of an optimization problem. In the present paper this optimization problem is examined in its application to reinforced concrete (RC) structures. Current methods are presented and their efficiency and robustness compared through numerical examples. They are shown to lack stable convergence, and a new highly robust method is proposed.
