Efficient uncertainty propagation schemes for dynamical systems are investigated here within the framework of stochastic finite element analysis. Uncertainty in the mathematical models arises from the incomplete knowledge or inherent variability of the various parametric and geometric properties of the physical system. These input uncertainties necessitate the use of stochastic mathematical models to accurately capture their behavior. The resolution of such stochastic models is computationally quite expensive. This work is concerned with development of model order reduction techniques for obtaining the dynamical response statistics of stochastic finite element systems. Efficient numerical methods have been proposed to propagate the input uncertainty of dynamical systems to the response variables. Response statistics of randomly parametrized structural dynamic systems have been investigated with a reduced spectral function approach. The frequency domain response and the transient evolution of the response of randomly parametrized structural dynamic systems have been studied with this approach. An efficient discrete representation of the input random field in a finite dimensional stochastic space is proposed here which has been integrated into the generic framework of the stochastic finite element weak formulation. This framework has been utilized to study the problem of random perturbation of the boundary surface of physical domains. Truncated reduced order representation of the complex mathematical quantities which are associated with the stochastic isoparametric mapping of the random domain to a deterministic master domain within the stochastic Galerkin framework have been provided. Lastly, an a-priori model reduction scheme for the resolution of the response statistics of stochastic dynamical systems has also been studied here which is based on the concept of balanced truncation. The performance and numerical accuracy of the methods proposed in this work have been exemplified with numerical simulations of stochastic dynamical systems and the convergence behavior of various error indicators.
