Uncertainty quantification and management using cossan software

In collaboration with the Institute for Risk and Uncertainty (UK) and Institut für Risiko und Zuverlässigkeit (Germany), we are offering a 3-day training course on Uncertainty Quantification using COSSAN Software.

Each day focuses on a specific topic. This allows the participants to attend a specific training day.

Aims and learning outcomes

You will learn the main techniques available for dealing with Risk Analysis and Uncertainty Quantification through an easy to use, yet powerful computational software

Main concepts and techniques
• Random Variables and Random Variables Sets
• Monte Carlo simulation and advanced simulation techniques (Subset simulation, Line Sampling, Importance Sampling, Latin Hypercube Sampling)
• Global and Local Sensitivity analysis
• Surrogate Models (Artificial Neural Networks, Responce surface, Kriging)
• Reliability based and robust design
