This two-day course explains the concepts and effective procedures used for managing uncertainties in model predictions. The focus is on methods, approaches, and strategies for quantifying uncertainties in model predictions.
Probabilistic and Uncertainty Quantification (UQ) methods are presented in-depth followed by exercises to reinforce the material. Attendees will learn how to use the NESSUS® probabilistic analysis software and will apply it throughout the course to gain experience in problem formulation and results interpretation and communication.
Course attendees will be furnished with print copies of the presentation, as well as printed copies of the charts used during the course. Attendees will also receive a 3-month license for the NESSUS® probabilistic analysis software.
You Will Learn To:
- Identify potential uncertainties in models and data
- Represent uncertainties in models and inputs
- Explain how uncertainties impact model predictions
- Select methods to efficiently propagate uncertainties in the models
- Identify options to reduce uncertainties in the model predictions
