Under the general theme "applications of probability and statistics to structural mechanics", the collected 25 original papers in this volume range from analytical and computational methods to specific problems in different branches of engineering. Examples include exact and approximate solution techniques for nonlinear systems, modeling random loads in seismic, wind turbulence, ocean and ice environments, structural damage processes, system estimation, structure-fluid interaction, structural optimization, structural active control, noise transmission, structural reliability, stochastic variation of structural properties, and stochastic finite elements.
