Special Issue on: "Uncertain Structural Systems"
Dr. Giovanni Falsone, University of Messina, Italy
Uncertainties arise in the analysis of the structures when one or more of the structural characteristics involved in the problem cannot be defined as deterministic quantities. This may be due to the excitation characteristics or to the material and/or geometric properties of the structures. The fundamental aims of the papers of this special issue are related to the definition of methods able to treat efficiently the analysis of these systems and to show how the uncertainties are transferred to the response characteristics.
Suitable topics include, but are not limited, to the following:
- Stochastic mechanics
- Random vibration
- Non-probabilistic methods
- Perturbation methods
- Monte Carlo approaches
- Frequency domain analyses
- Stochastic earthquake and wind dynamics
