Call for papers: "Uncertain Structural Systems"

For a special issue of the International Journal of Sustainable Materials and Structural Systems.

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

Important Dates
Manuscripts due by: 2 October, 2017
