Purpose and Scope:

The ASCE-ASME Journal of Risk and Uncertainty in Engineering Systems, Part B: Mechanical Engineering disseminates research findings, best practices and concerns, and discussion and debate on risk and uncertainty related issues. The journal reports on the full range of risk and uncertainty analysis state-of-art and state-of-practice relating to mechanical engineering, including but not limited to risk quantification based on hazard identification, scenario development and rate quantification, consequence assessment, valuations, perception, communication, risk-informed decision making, uncertainty analysis and modeling, and other related areas.

Specific topic areas including, but not limited to: Risk analysis methods; Uncertainty analysis and quantification; Management, financial, and insurance issues; Computational methods; Mechanical assets and infrastructure; Materials and electromechanical; Energy; Manufacturing; Water resources, coastal and ocean systems; Bioengineering; Nuclear engineering; Information storage and processing; Project management and construction engineering
