Stochastic Load Representations and Nonlinear Stochastic Structural Dynamics Approaches

Mini-symposium in 13th International Conference on Applications of Statistics and Probability in Civil Engineering (ICASP 13), 26-30 May, 2019, Seoul, South Korea



Treatment of uncertainty when addressing real-world engineering problems has long been recognized as a topic of considerable importance, attracting researchers from a vast array of diverse fields. In particular, recent advances in broad reaching topics such as inelastic random vibration theory, stochastic hazard modelling and Monte Carlo simulation-based approaches constitute a rational basis for response system determination and reliability assessment. Most structural systems are subject to excitations, such as earthquakes and winds, which exhibit strong variability in both the intensity and the frequency content. Clearly, this attribute necessitates careful consideration of the representation for this class of loads by rendering appropriately to efficient concepts for a consistent and rigorous stochastic characterization. Next, regarding the transmission of random vibration, recent developments in the areas of nonlinear stochastic dynamics and/or Monte Carlo simulation-based approaches provide the basis for efficient system response determination. The objective of this mini-symposium is to explore future pathways in these areas by fostering multi-disciplinary approaches across theoretical and practical disciplines. This effort will be a considerable step towards coupling advanced stochastic engineering dynamics with stochastic hazard modelling, leading to a paradigm shift in the way modern engineering systems work.
