Presents the current state of the art of nondeterministic mechanics
Specially designed to illuminate the various aspects of the three basic techniques to deal with various uncertainties
Stimulates further mutual and useful dialogue between proponents of differing methodologies
In this book the current state of the art of nondeterministic mechanics in its various forms is presented. The topics range from stochastic problems to fuzzy sets; from linear to nonlinear problems; from specific methodologies to combinations of various techniques; from theoretical considerations to practical applications. It is specially designed to illuminate the various aspects of the three methodologies (probabilistic or stochastic modelling, fuzzy sets based analysis, antioptimization of structures) to deal with various uncertainties and deepen the discussion of their pros and cons.
