Abstract

As computing power increases and data relating to elementary chemical and physical processes improves, the use of computational modelling as a design tool in environmental and safety engineering is becoming increasingly important. Sensitivity analysis (SA) and uncertainty analysis (UA) can help to gain a better physical insight into the model and they can highlight possible discrepancies between experimental results and model predictions. Global methods are the best approach for this purpose, however using current methodologies their calculation consumes large amounts of computational effort.
