Abstract

A full course, "Introduction to Uncertainty Quantification" is offered on memsHUB.org. A subset of lectures related to nanotechnology is available here.

The focus of the course is on the quantification of uncertainty in multiscale multiphsyics simulations for engineering analysis. Though engineering simulation has become the mainstay of academic and industrial analysis in recent years, there has been little emphasis in understanding and quantifying the source of uncertainty in predictions. These uncertainties may arise for a variety of reasons: lack of mesh-independence, inadequate physical models, uncertainties in geometry, operating conditions and material properties, among others. The course introduces the student to the concepts of verification and validation, sensitivity analysis, and uncertainty propagation using sampling methods, polynomial chaos and reliability based methods. An introduction to uncertainty quantification software is also given. Emerging topics in uncertainty quantification of microsystem simulations are presented.
