This work studies the uncertainties of the adhesive contact problems for reduced size structures, e.g. the stiction failure of microelectromechanical systems (MEMS). In MEMS, because of the large surface to volume ratio, the surfaces forces, such as van der Waals forces and capillary forces, are dominant in comparison with the body forces. As these force(More)

In numerous critical areas from across science and engineering, models and simulations share a common base of mathematical formulations and algorithms that are multi-physics, multi-scale and/or multi-domain in nature. The crucial demand for predictive computational results in these areas motivates the development of uncertainty quantification approaches for(More)
