Abstract

In this paper different Polynomial Chaos methods coupled to Fictitious Domain approach have been applied to one- and two- dimensional elliptic problems with multi uncertain variables in order to compare the accuracy and convergence of the methodologies. Both intrusive and non-intrusive methods have been considered, with particular attention to their employment for quantification of geometric uncertainties. A Fictitious Domain approach with Least-Squares Spectral Element approximation has been employed for the analysis of differential problems with uncertain boundary domains. Its main advantage lies in the fact that only a Cartesian mesh, that represents the enclosure, needs to be generated. Excellent accuracy properties of considered methods are demonstrated by numerical experiments.
