Structural joints influence the design strength, material requirement of a structure. Structural joints experience damping dissipation due to friction damping or hysteresis damping. Damping is often used for reducing the vibrations in a structure. However, large amount of energy dissipation leads to deterioration of the material used for...

The friction force at joints of engineering structures is usually unknown and not directly identifiable. This contribution explores a procedure for obtaining the governing equation of motion and correctly identifying the unknown Coulomb friction force of a mass-springdashpot system. In particular, a single degree-of-freedom system is...

The inverse problem of structural system identification is prone to illā€conditioning issues; thus, uniqueness and stability cannot be guaranteed. This issue tends to amplify the error propagation of both the epistemic and aleatory uncertainties, where aleatory uncertainty is related to the accuracy and the quality of sensors. The analysis of...

To exploit its socio-economic functions, engineering measures are regularly applied in estuaries. Estuaries are, however, known to be very complex systems. Stemming from this complexity is the generation of a so-called estuarine turbidity maximum (ETM), which poses great siltation problems to the engineering measures. An engineering measure,...

Governing risks is not only a technical matter, but also a matter of ethical and societal considerations. In this article, we argue that in addition to scientific and technical uncertainties, we need to also address normative uncertainties of risk decisions. We define normative uncertainties as situations where there are different partially...

The reliability analysis approach based on combined probability and evidence theory is studied in this paper to address the reliability analysis problem involving both aleatory uncertainties and epistemic uncertainties with flexible intervals (the interval bounds are either fixed or variable as functions of other independent variables). In...
