The Monte Carlo method is often a favorite selection to estimate the reliability of structure since it involves no complex mathematical analysis, especially when systems are so complex or large that deterministic methods are difficult. In this paper, Monte Carlo method is used to analyse the failure probability of a gravity wharf in Yellow Sea. In addition, in view of the uncertainty exited in calculation model or other aspects, the sensitivity of failure probability is calculated.
