Probabilistic structural dynamics offers unparalleled tools for analyzing uncertainties in structural design. Once avoided because it is mathematically rigorous, this technique has recently remerged with the aide of computer software. Written by an author/educator with 40 years of experience in structural design, this user friendly manual integrates theories, formulas and mathematical models to produce a guide that will allow professionals to quickly grasp concepts and start solving problems. In this book, the author uses simple examples that provide templates for creating of more robust case studies later in the book. *Problems are presented in an easy to understand form *Practical guide to software programs to solve design problems *Packed with examples and case studies of actual projects *Classical and the new stochastic factors of safety

Annotation This text synthesizes a wealth of useful information for analyzing random vibrations and structures into one coherent body of knowledge. It takes a practical yet progressive look at two major fields related to random analysis: linear and geometrically nonlinear structures, and the behavior of random structures under random loads. System harmonics and oscillations, random functions, and the theory of random vibration are covered extensively throughout the text, which includes innovative methods for calculating the probability of failure for dynamic systems. Simplified examples demonstrate applications for daily use and present new approaches to failure analysis. The author evaluates the use of random process methods for the stochastic analysis of crack growth in detail, providing a better description of failures resulting from crack propagation. For young engineers, the book touches on finite element programs such as ANSYS and the probabilistic analysis program PROBAN, facilitating solutions to more complex problems. It also illustrates how to write a FORTRAN program to build a numerical procedure suitable for the design needs.

This book offers readers a balanced exposition of both the mathematical theory of stochastic processes and the principle of structural mechanics. It begins with a comprehensive discussion of linear structures under additive random excitations, within the frameworks of spectral analysis, evolutionary spectral analysis, and the theory of random pulse train. This is then followed by a thorough treatment of Markov processes, including the justification of the Markov idealization from a physical point of view, and the solution techniques when applied to model a nonlinear dynamical system under additive random excitations, multiplicative random excitations, or both. Approximately on-half of the book deals with such advanced topics as motion stability of dynamical systems due to multiplicative excitations, failures due to the excursion of the system response into unsafe regions, and random uncertainties of system parameters and initial conditions. The authors have taken special care to keep the development of mathematical principles challenging, and yet comprehensive to any reader with a sound background in mechanics. The inclusion of many examples in earthquake and wind engineering also makes the book a desirable reference for interested researchers in these areas.

Earthquake engineering is the ultimate challenge for structural engineers. Even if natural phenomena such as earthquakes involve great uncertainties, structural engineers need to design buildings, bridges, and dams capable of resisting the destructive forces produced by earthquakes. However, structural engineers must rely on the expertise of other specialists to realize these projects. Thus, this book not only focuses on structural analysis and design, but also discusses other disciplines, such as geology, seismology, and soil dynamics, providing basic knowledge in these areas so that structural engineers can better interact with different specialists when working on earthquake engineering projects."
