Introduction to Uncertainty Quantification for Engineers

Sign in to follow this  



Anyone who builds complex, mission-critical systems knows that real-world performance is hard to simulate and test. This is due to uncertainty. Uncertainty may arise from approximations or variations in boundary conditions and initial conditions in models, or it could arise from deviations in materials, assembly, operating conditions, and wear in finished products. 

Uncertainty Quantification (UQ) tools can quantify these uncertainties while significantly reducing the number of simulations or tests required to get meaningful results. UQ tools help engineers analyze the difference between models and real-world performance so they avoid premature failure, costly warranty payments, and emergency redesigns. Major federal agencies, including the Department of Defense (DoD), the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), have guidance materials encouraging the use of UQ in simulation analysis. 

During this webinar you will learn: 

  • The basics of common UQ and probabilistic methods.
  • The role UQ plays in the verification, validation and uncertainty quantification (VVUQ) process.
  • How to apply UQ methods to an engineering system and drastically save design time and much more.
