Effects of Random Material Properties and Loads

Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Probabilistic Methods in Civil Engineering


The variability of slab deflections is estimated from analytical expressions accounting for random variations of spatially distributed loads and material properties (stiffness parameters). The results are sensitive to the 'scales of fluctuations' of the random variables.
