The response of a nonlinear dynamic structure can be sensitive to its initial conditions or parameters. In order to ensure its safety and robustness, an understanding of the global structural responses is necessary. This requires performing a parameter study. However, this is extremely difficult due to the complexity arising from nonlinearities and the associated computational costs. Hence, it is highly desirable to have new methods to tackle these difficulties.
