Abstract

In many engineering fields there is the need of realistic simulations able to deal with uncertainties to characterize, predict, and simulate complex systems and components is largely recognised. However, it is mostly deterministic analyses that are performed; Prof. G.I. Schuëller recognized that one of the reasons was the lack of efficient stochastic analysis methods. He has pioneered developments in the area of Computational Methods in Stochastic Mechanics and Dynamics. This paper presents some of recent advancements on the development of efficient reliability methods to deal with generalised description of uncertainty (e.g. intervals) and on the development of COSSAN software, a general purpose tools initiated by Prof. Schuëller aimed to promote the use of stochastic methods to industry.
