Title:Uncertainty Quantification and Its Application in Energy and
Seminar:CCMA Luncheon Seminar
Speaker:Guang Lin, Pacific Northwest National Lab
Uncertainty plays an important role in quantifying the performance of complex systems with application to energy and environment modeling and needs to be treated as a core element in modeling, simulation and optimization of complex systems. In this talk, some uncertainty quantification application in energy and environment modeling at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory will be presented first. A new formulation for uncertainty quantification will be discussed with extensions to different fields of mechanics and to dynamical systems. An integrated simulation framework will be presented that quantifies the uncertainties across scales and establishes "error bars" in numerical simulations. In particular, stochastic formulations based on Galerkin and collocation versions of the generalized Polynomial Chaos (gPC) will be discussed.
