The research objective is to design and construct a method for functional reliability analysis of concrete gravity dam. Firstly, the pseudo excitation method was utilized to analyze to calculate the probabilistic characteristics of concrete gravity dam excited by random seismic loading. Meanwhile, the response surface method based on weighted regression was associated to that method to analyze functional reliability of concrete gravity dam. Eventually, a test example was given to verify and analyze the convergence and stability of this method.
