Abstract

This work shows the variability of the friction angle based on the geological history, over the bearing capacity of shallow foundations. This study was developed through the generation of random fields of friction angle using the matrix decomposition technique for a self-correlated [...]

Abstract

A state of the art on simulation methods in stochastic structural analysis is presented. The purpose of the
paper is to review some of the di erent methods available for analysing the effects of randomness of models
and data in structural analysis. While most of these [...]

Abstract

Hydraulic fracturing processes are surrounded by uncertainty, as available data is typically scant. In this work, we present a sampling-based stochastic analysis of the hydraulic fracturing [...]

Abstract

Understanding the failure of brittle heterogeneous materials is essential in many applications. Heterogeneities in material properties are frequently modeled through random fields, which [...]
