Uncertainty Quantification on HPC with COSSAN Software

Event Details

In collaboration with the Institute for Risk and Uncertainty and Hartree Centre, we are offering a 3 days training course on Uncertainty Quantification using COSSAN Software on High Performance Computing.

Structure of the training programme

Each day focuses on a specific topic. This allows the participant to attend a specific training day. The first day is dedicated to an introduction of general concepts of stochastic and probabilistic analysis as well as an introduction to High Performance Computing with practical exercises. The second day is dedicated to COSSAN-X software while the last day will concentrate on the OpenCossan software.

Aims and Learning outcomes

You will learn the main techniques available for dealing with Risk and Uncertainty and how to use High Performance Computing to speed up the analysis.

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