Importance sampling has been used to improve the efficiency of simulations where the simulation output is uniquely determined, given a fixed input. We extend the theory of importance sampling to estimate a system’s reliability with stochastic simulations. Thanks to the advance of computing power, stochastic computer models are employed in many applications to represent a complex system behavior. More
To quantify and minimize the uncertainties in the design and operational stage, we model and analyze the dependency of wind turbine responses (e.g., power generation, loads and condition monitoring sensor measurement) on operating conditions and the interactions among turbines. Our research entails several areas… More
This afternoon, 8/13 Professor Judy Mitrani-Reiser will speak about critical care facilities in Nepal and how the earthquake on April 25th affected them.
The Pacific Earthquake Engineering Research Center (PEER), Earthquake Engineering Research Institute (EERI), and Geotechnical Extreme Events Reconnaissance (GEER) Association reconnaissance briefing will be streamed live from the University of California, Berkeley from 2:45PM – 4:45PM EDT. Watch it live here.
Other topics in the briefing include: Engineering Seismology and Geotechnical Engineering, EERI Reconnaissance Overview & Findings, Structures and Data Collection, and Social, Psychological & Mental Health. More information about the briefing.
