This work models spatially uncorrelated (independent) load uncertainty and develops a reduced-order Monte Carlo stochastic isogeometric method to quantify the effect of the load uncertainty on the structural response of thin shells and solid structures. The approach is tested on two demonstrative applications of uncertainty, namely, spatially uncorrelated loading, with (1) Scordelis–Lo Roof shell structure, and (2) a 3D wind turbine blade. This work has three novelties. Firstly, the research models spatially uncorrelated (independent) load uncertainties (including both their magnitude and/or direction) using stochastic analysis. Secondly, the paper advances a reduced-order Monte Carlo stochastic isogeometric method to quantify the spatially uncorrelated load uncertainty. It inherits the merits of isogeometric analysis, which enables the precise representation of geometry and alleviates shell shear locking, thereby reducing the model’s uncertainties. Moreover, the method retains the generality and accuracy of classical Monte Carlo simulation (MCS), with significant efficiency gains. The demonstrative results suggest that there is a cost, which is 3% of the time used by the standard MCS. Furthermore, a significant observation is made from the conducted numerical tests. It is noticed that the standard deviation of the output (i.e., displacement) is strongly influenced when the load uncertainty is spatially uncorrelated. Namely, the standard derivation (SD) of the output is roughly 10 times smaller than the SD for correlated load uncertainties. Nonetheless, the expected values remain consistent between the two cases.

Abstract This paper presents an n-th high order perturbation-based stochastic isogeometric Kirchhoff–Love shell method, formulation and implementation for modeling and quantifying geometric (thickness) uncertainty in thin shell structures. Firstly, the Non-Uniform Rational B-Splines (NURBS) is used to describe the geometry and interpolate the variables in a deterministic aspect. Then, the shell structures with geometric (thickness) uncertainty are investigated by developing an nth order perturba...

Abstract After space discretization employing traditional dynamic isogeometric analysis of structures (composite type) with/without dissimilar materials, the issues that persist include either using numerically non-dissipative time integration algorithms that induces the high frequency participation (oscillations) in solution, or using dissipative algorithms that can dampen the high frequency participation but simultaneously induce significant loss of total energy of the system. To circumvent th...

Abstract The boundary element method (BEM) is a powerful tool in computational acoustics, because the analysis is conducted only on structural surfaces, compared to the finite element method (FEM) which resorts to special techniques to truncate infinite domains. The isogeometric boundary element method (IGABEM) is a recent progress in the category of boundary element approaches, which is inspired by the concept of isogeometric analysis (IGA) and employs the spline functions of CAD as basis funct...

Abstract In this study, a novel dynamic isogeometric reanalysis (DIGR) method based on the Newmark- β method is suggested to improve the computational efficiency. The dynamic response of the modified structure can be efficiently predicted by using the DIGR method without solving the complete set of modified equilibrium equations of the modified structure. Compared with popular dynamic reanalysis methods, DIGR has higher accuracy and can solve more complex structures rather than simple truss or b...

Abstract A spectral stochastic isogeometric analysis (SSIGA) scheme is proposed for the stochastic linear stability analysis of plate with uncertain material properties. Within the proposed SSIGA scheme, the first-order shear deformation theory of plate is adopted for modelling the kinematic relationship. Both homogeneous and functionally graded material (FGM) models can be incorporated. The considered spatially dependent uncertainties (i.e., Young’s modulus and Poisson’s ratio) are modelled as ...

Abstract A novel spectral stochastic isogeometric analysis (SSIGA) is proposed for the free vibration analysis of engineering structures involving uncertainties. The proposed SSIGA framework treats the stochastic free vibration problem as a stochastic generalized eigenvalue problem. The stochastic Young’s modulus and material density of the structure are modelled as random fields with Gaussian and non-Gaussian distributions. The basis functions, the non-uniform rational B-spline (NURBS) and T-sp...

Abstract Structural stochastic analysis is vital to engineering. However, current material related uncertainty methods are mostly limited to low dimension, and they mostly remain unable to account for spatially uncorrelated material uncertainties. They are not representative of realistic and practical engineering situations. In particular, it is more serious for composite structures comprised of dissimilar materials. Therefore, we propose a novel model order reduction via proper orthogonal decom...

We derive a hyperelastic shell formulation based on the Kirchhoff–Love shell theory and isogeometric discretization, where we take into account the out-of-plane deformation mapping. Accounting for that mapping affects the curvature term. It also affects the accuracy in calculating the deformed-configuration out-of-plane position, and consequently the nonlinear response of the material. In fluid–structure interaction analysis, when the fluid is inside a shell structure, the shell midsurface is wh...

Abstract null null Design for six sigma has become increasingly important in complex optimization work considering uncertainty. In this paper, we present a six sigma robust optimization method based on a pseudo single-loop optimization strategy and an ensemble of random forest regression and deep belief networks (RFR-DBN). To verify its validity, we take a lightweight passenger car seat with insufficient samples as an example. We utilize intractable insufficient samples in a complex optimization...
