Random fields, analysis and synthesis by Erik Vanmarcke( Book )

32 editions published between 1983 and 2010 in English and held by 505 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Random variation is a fact of life that provides substance to a wide range of problems in the sciences, engineering, and economics. There is a growing need in diverse disciplines to model complex patterns of variation and interdependence using random fields, as both deterministic treatment and conventional statistics are often insufficient. An ideal random field model will capture key features of complex random phenomena in terms of a minimum number of physically meaningful and experimentally accessible parameters. This volume offers a synthesis of methods to describe and analyze and, where appropriate, predict and control random fields. There is much new material, covering both theory and applications, notably on a class of probability distributions derived from quantum mechanics, relevant to stochastic modeling in fields such as cosmology, biology and system reliability, and on discrete-unit or agent-based random processes

Probabilistic site characterization at the National Geotechnical Experimentation Sites( Book )

6 editions published in 2003 in English and German and held by 109 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The papers in this Geotechnical Special Publication explain and demonstrate a broad range of methods of probabilistic site characterization using soil data obtained at one or more National Geotechnical Experimentation Sites (NGES). There are results for both horizontal and vertical variation of measured soil properties, under different assumptions about trend removal and layering at a site, or about the validity of combining data from non-contiguous soil deposits. The aim of this publication is to provide both a state-of-the-art assessment of statistical methods of soil profile modeling and a set of baseline statistics, representative of the well-documented NGES, intended to serve as a priori information for probabilistic site characterization."--BOOK JACKET

Multi-hazard risk analysis : case of a simple offshore structure by Binod Kumar Bhartia( Book )

2 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This report develops and illustrates methodology for multi-mode, multi-hazard risk assessment. The case study involves an offshore structure subjected to earthquake shaking and storm-generated wind, wave, and current loads. Two classes of risks are calculated: (1) conditional failure probabilities under short-term loads; and (2) long-term or overall risks, which depend on occurrence patterns of loads of different intensities. This report shows that the relative importance of different loads depends on the limit states and on the load and structural characteristics. For a flexible offshore structure, the storm loads dominate in the case of a displacement limit state, but are unimportant compared to the earthquake load in relation to an acceleration limit state. Parameter uncertainty is shown to always increase the long-term risk; in the case study, the increase is more pronounced for the displacement limit state than for the acceleration limit state. Also, it is shown that the ambient load increases the risk due to earthquake loads alone, especially at the lower resistance levels."--Abstract
