Description/Abstract

Geometric uncertainties are commonly encountered in computational modeling of a wide variety of engineered and natural systems. A motivating example is statistical analysis of the biomechanical integrity of total hip replacements, where there is a pressing need to consider inter- and intra-patient variability in the femur geometry and desnity distribution. There is currently very little work in the literature on how to incoporate such models of geometric uncertainty in stochastic finite element methods.
