Abstract Reliability of pipe structure is one aspect to be considered in reactor safety analysis. MSC NASTRAN is a computer code that can be used to calculate pipe deflection for reliability evaluation. MSC PATRAN can be used to generate input for this code. Uncertainty evaluation needs to be done in the input variable to understand uncertainty range in the analysis results. A computer code for evaluating structure reliability has been developed in our previous study. The code has implemented latin hypercube sampling (LHS) to assess uncertainty in the input variable, such as load and modulus of elasticity. In this study, comparison of two uncertainty methods, i.e. simple random sampling (SRS) and LHS, was carried out for the developed software. The comparison was subjected to pipe deflection calculation using 100 samples. Comparison analysis shows that LHS method produces a robust mean of variance for all sample size. The results also confirm that variance of pipe deflection using LHS is smaller by 3% than SRS one. It can be concluded that LHS is appropriate to be implemented for uncertainty analysis in the developed code.
