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, design for resilience, uncertainty analysis and modeling, and other related areas.

Risk and reliability analysis methods; Uncertainty analysis and quantification; Resilience assessment and design for resilience, Optimization under uncertainty; Computational methods; Applications areas including every aspect of mechanical engineering systems, such as mechanical assets and infrastructure, materials and electromechanical systems, energy, manufacturing, automotive, aerospace, and marine systems, bioengineering, and nuclear engineering.

Part A: Civil Engineering of the ASCE-ASME Journal of Risk and Uncertainty in Engineering Systems is published by ASCE, ascelibrary.org/journal/ajrua6, with a scope similar to Part B focusing on civil engineering systems.
