What is it about?

This paper is devoted to present an integrated uncertainty and sensitivity procedure for use in performance assessments for train-bridge interactions.

Why is it important?

Sensitivity analysis and uncertainty analysis should not be seperated, that is, a systematic approach for quantifying the variability of outcomes generated from uncertainties in parameter inputs (uncertainty analysis), and then identifying which inputs are most responsible for this variability (sensitivity analysis).


Grasp the full response status of train-bridge systems with uncertainties and clarify the main contributive factors to the system performance.
