Abstract: Structural behaviour analysis of thin-walled structures is one of the major concerns of civil engineering/construction engineering. The traditional calculation methods are not reliable for determining the structural capacity, and the calculation results from these methods would be different from the experimental results by 20% for many cases. Therefore, there is a demand for finding some convenient and reliable calculation methods for the thin-walled structures considering the uncertainty from the engineering practice. In this speech, some machine learning applications on thin-walled structures will be introduced, and a case study from our group will be presented in detail. Finally, some opportunities for future research would be discussed.
