Does any of you have a simple OpenSees reliability example where a structure (any structure) is subjected to ground acceleration time-history?
I have one example for static analysis but dynamic reliability analysis is a mystery to me for the moment.
Thanks for your help in advance,

Dynamic reliability analysis is not a trivial problem and most likely FORM is not going to converge at design point, depending on the type of response (peak, displacement, stress, strain, etc) in the limit-state function.
If you want to carry out any other reliability anlaysis (e.g., sampling), simply replace the static load definitions with dynamic load. All the syntax is similar to a regular time-history analysis.
Hope this helps,
