    Samenvatting

    Stochastic finite element methods (SFEM) are commonly used to investigate the influence of uncertainties on the response of linear solid mechanics problems. In this contribution a stochastic finite element method is applied to a continuum damage model, which is a non-linear solid mechanics problem. The influence of two sources of randomness is investigated. Numerical results show that applicability of spectral SFEM to the problem of non-linear solid mechanics is promising. However, discontinuities caused by loading conditions cannot yet be dealt with elegantly, which can put serious limitations on the applicability of the method.
