Based on the fuzziness of random parameters in the reliability analysis model, a fuzzy random reliability analysis model using the first-order second moment method (FOSM) is established. With the decomposition theorem, a series of cut sets are obtained and the fuzzy numbers are converted into a series of interval numbers for calculation, achieving a reasonable fuzzy random reliability calculation method. This method is proved reasonable and practical to analyze the reliability of piles by many actual examples.
