Description

This mpp_search option performs the MPP search on the original response functions without the use of any approximations. Note that the use of the no_approx MPP search with first-order probability integration results in the traditional reliability method called FORM (First-Order Reliability Method). Similarly, the use of no_approx with second-order probability integration results in SORM (Second-Order Reliability Method).
