Considers the problem of structures’ sensitivities to prescribed displacements uncertainties through the use of fuzzy numbers. Important properties of fuzzy subsets have been studied and used to model uncertainties, and to solve the fuzzy linear system resulting from taking into account the uncertainties on prescribed displacements. Develops a computer program to allow comparisons between several structural designs checking common specifications. Demonstrates the effectiveness of the present method for a cantilever structure modelled in the case of a static finite element analysis.
