The elastoplastic behavior of the macroscopically homogeneous material is defined by the Gurson—Tvergaard—Needleman constitutive model and the parameters involved are considered as random variables with Gaussian probability distribution. A comparison with Monte Carlo simulation as well as the semi-analytical integral technique based on the same polynomial bases confirms applicability of the proposed method for moderate input uncertainty.
In summary, the papers of this Special Section provide a glimpse of the current research trends in the field of stochastic multiscale modeling which aims at improving the safety and reliability of heterogeneous materials and structures.
