Article
We propose a meta-learning technique for offline discovery of physics-informed neural network (PINN) loss functions. We extend earlier works on meta-learning, and develop a gradient-based meta-learning algorithm for addressing diverse task distributions based on parametrized partial differential equations (PDEs) that are solved with PINNs. Furtherm...

Full-text available
Neural networks (NNs) are currently changing the computational paradigm on how to combine data with mathematical laws in physics and engineering in a profound way, tackling challenging inverse and ill-posed problems not solvable with traditional methods. However, quantifying errors and uncertainties in NN-based inference is more complicated than in...
Article
Full-text available
The Wiener path integral (WPI) technique for determining the stochastic response of diverse nonlinear systems is enhanced herein based on a Bayesian compressive sampling (CS) treatment. Specifically, first, sparse expansions for the system response joint probability density function (PDF) are employed. Next, exploiting the localization capabilities...

Article
A methodology based on the Wiener path integral technique (WPI) is developed for stochastic response determination and reliability-based design optimization of a class of nonlinear electromechanical energy harvesters endowed with fractional derivative elements. In this regard, first, the WPI technique is appropriately adapted and enhanced to accoun...
Article
A novel Wiener path integral (WPI) technique is developed for determining the response of stochastically excited nonlinear oscillators. This is done by employing functional series expansions in conjunction with quadratic approximations. The technique can be construed as an extension and enhancement in terms of accuracy of the standard (semiclassica...
Article
Full-text available
The Wiener path integral (WPI) approximate semi-analytical technique for determining the joint response probability density function (PDF) of stochastically excited nonlinear oscillators is generalized herein to account for systems with singular diffusion matrices. Indicative examples include (but are not limited to) systems with only some of their...
Article
The exact joint response transition probability density function (PDF) of linear multi-degree-of-freedom oscillators under Gaussian white noise is derived in closed-form based on the Wiener path integral (WPI) technique. Specifically, in the majority of practical implementations of the WPI technique, only the first couple of terms are retained in t...
Article
Full-text available
A novel approximate technique based on Wiener path integrals (WPIs) is developed for determining, in a computationally efficient manner, the non-stationary joint response probability density function (PDF) of nonlinear multi-degree-of-freedom dynamical systems. Specifically, appropriate multi-dimensional (time-dependent) global bases are constructe...
Article
Full-text available
The recently developed Wiener Path Integral (WPI) technique for determining the joint response probability density function of nonlinear systems subject to Gaussian white noise excitation is generalized herein to account for non-white, non-Gaussian, and non-stationary excitation processes. Specifically, modeling the excitation process as the output...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
The standard implementation of the recently developed Wiener path integral (WPI) technique for determining the stochastic response of diverse dynamic systems can be computationally cumbersome, especially for high-dimensional problems. To decrease the computational cost, an enhanced WPI technique formulation was recently proposed by Kougioumtzoglou...
Conference Paper
The recently developed Wiener Path Integral (WPI) technique for determining the joint response probability density function of stochastically excited nonlinear systems is extended herein to account for systems with singular diffusion matrices. Among others, indicative examples include partially forced systems, hysteresis modeling via additional aux...

Article
Full-text available
In seismic retrofitting of concrete buildings, frame bays are converted into reinforced concrete (RC) walls by infilling the space between the frame members with RC of a thickness of not more than their width. The cyclic behavior of the resulting wall depends on the connection between the RC infill and the surrounding RC members. The paper uses the...
