This paper describes an investigation of different variations of the robotic intervention protocol, a method for obtaining verbalization data from children during evaluation that involves using a social robot as a proxy for a test facilitator to prompt, ask, and help children thus encouraging them to verbalize their thoughts and experiences. A number of(More)
Reliability analysis of spacecraft structures under static and dynamic loading. Abstract The aim of the present paper is to demonstrate that, thanks to recently proposed simulation-based methods, it is now possible to efficiently analyse the reliability of large-scale structures modelled with very large FE systems. This capability is of paramount importance(More)
Realistic and efficient reliability estimation for aerospace structures. Abstract In this paper an efficient procedure for calculating non-exceedance probabilities of the structural response is presented, with emphasis on structures modeled by large finite element systems with many uncertain parameters. This is a problem which receives considerable(More)
Static and dynamic reliability analysis of integral satellite in view of low failure probability. ABSTRACT In conventional safety-factor based design the uncertainty about structural and loading parameters is accounted for by means of safety factors which are applied in combination with the results of a deter-ministic analysis. In this case, however, the(More)
