CEE 930, section 028: Engineering Process Modeling and Risk Analysis
Instructor: Professor Photios G. Ioannou
Synopsis: Engineering complex systems, models and simulation. Probabilistic aspects of simulations. Data collection and selection of input distributions. Design of experiments, input and output analysis and interpretation. Random number generators, variate and process generation. Monte Carlo simulation models. Activity cycle diagrams. Cyclone-EZStrobe-Stroboscope networks. In-depth examination of discrete-event simulation systems. Variance reduction techniques, antithetic sampling, common random numbers. Simulation and optimization. Parametric analysis. Single system output analysis and multiple system comparison. Hands-on model development using Stroboscope, EZStrobe, ProbSched, Risk-Solver-Platform, Simtools, and YASAI. Animations using Proof-Animation, Vita2D and Vitascope++. Applications from on-site construction, off-site manufacturing, tunneling, earthmoving, mining, land, air, and marine transportation systems.
Lectures will be Tu-Th 2:30-4:00 PM in room 1371 GGB.
Prerequisites: There are no strict prerequisites but a prior exposure to the rudiments of probability or statistics would be helpful.
