A typical hot structural component within an engine such as composite combustor liner is computationally simulated and probabilistically evaluated in view of the numerous uncertainties associated with the structural, material, and thermo-mechanical load variables (primitive variables) that describe the combustor. The combustor is evaluated for local stresses. Results show that the scatter in the combined stress near the support is significantly dependent upon the uncertainties in the through thickness thermal gradients, the liner material thickness, the coefficient of thermal expansion, and the axial and both the axial and shear moduli.
