Estimation of the probability distribution of the random bearing capacity of cohesionless soil using the random finite element method

Soil mathematical modelling is a complex task when considering random soil parameters. To consider soil spatial variability, one can assume that soil properties are random variables or random fields.

Development of fuzzy probability based random fields for the numerical structural design

In structural analysis with multivariate random fields, the underlying distribution functions, the autocorrelations, and the crosscorrelations require an extensive quantification, so polymorphic uncertainty models are attained by involving uncertainty models with epistemic characteristic for the quantification of the stochastic models in this contribution.
