Stochastic response of structures with small geometric imperfections. (English) Zbl 0654.73033
A probabilistic model of the geometric imperfections of a real structure is proposed, in order to provide a general theory of the stochastic response of structures in the presence of small random deviations from the “perfect” scheme. The main statistical measures of the stochastic response are derived and an application to the study of a particular conservative elastic system is developed.
