This volume contains 45 full-length papers presented at the IUTAM Symposium on Advances in Nonlinear Stochastic Mechanics in Trondheim, Norway in July 1995. The contributions span the range from basic theoretical research to engineering applications. Particular areas covered include stochastic stability, nonlinear active control, nonlinear stochastic response, random material and system properties, stochastic finite elements, methods for non-gaussian processes, system identification, and modelling of environmental load processes. Specific applications include material fatigue, wind loading and response, offshore and earthquake engineering, and railway vibrations. The volume gives a representative overview of recent progress in theoretical methods and selected engineering applications and should prove a useful reference for researchers in this active field.
