Uncertainty Quantification and Optimization Under Uncertainty: Experience and Challenges

Saturday, June 4, 2011 - 10:00am - 11:00am
Lind 305
Andrew Booker (The Boeing Company)
This talk will describe experiences and challenges at Boeing with Uncertainty Quantification (UQ) and Optimization Under Uncertainty (OUU) in conceptual design problems that use complex computer simulations. The talk will describe tools and methods that have been developed and used by the Applied Math group at Boeing and their perceived strengths and limitations. Application of the tools and methods will be illustrated with an example in conceptual design of a hypersonic vehicle. Finally I will discuss future development plans and needs in UQ and OUU.
