Computational Stochastic Mechanics
Proceedings of the 5th International Conference on Computational Stochastic Mechanics (CSM-5), Rhodes, Greece, June 21-23, 2006
This volume comprises a collection of papers presented at the 5th International Conference on Computational Stochastic Mechanics which was held in Rhodes, Greece on June 21-23, 2006. The papers have been authored/co-authored by individuals reflecting rich thematic and geographical diversity. This conference was the sequel to the 4th International Conference on Computational Stochastic Mechanics which was held in Kerkyra, Greece on June 9-12, 2002. Previous conferences were held in Corfu (1991), Athens (1994), and Santorini (1998); Greece. This series of conferences have been established as a forum for advancing the status of computational methods as they apply to stochastic mechanics.
The papers address themes in:
Characterization of Stochastic Materials: Micro- and Nano-Structure
Damage and Fatigue
Health Monitoring of Structural Systems
Linear and Nonlinear Random Vibrations
Loss Estimation for Natural Hazards
Monte Carlo Simulation Techniques
Random Processes and Fields
Reliability-Based Optimal Design
Stochastic Finite Element Methods
Structural Identification and Control
The volume is of interest to practitioners and researchers employing stochastic methods for a broad class of problems in engineering and applied science.
