Numerical simulation of thin solids remains one of the challenges in computational mechanics. The 3D elasticity problems of shells of revolution are dimensionally reduced in different ways depending on the symmetries of the configurations resulting in corresponding 2D models. In this paper, we solve the multiparametric free vibration of complex shell configurations under uncertainty using stochastic collocation with the p-version of finite element method and apply the collocation approach to frequency response analysis. In numerical examples, the sources of uncertainty are related to material parameters and geometry representing manufacturing imperfections. All stochastic collocation results have been verified with Monte Carlo methods.
