NASA Problem Description Combined aleatory and epistemic uncertainty –Epistemic uncertainty: 31 θ’s (Sub-parameters) –Aleatory uncertainty: 21 p’s (Parameters) 2 Intermediate Variables Constraints Worst case scenario Performance Metrics Parameters Design Variables

Toy Problem 3 Function of G G 1 = 5(- P 1 + P 2 - (P 3 – 0.5)) G 2 = 0.7 – P 3 P 1 : Constant P 2 : Normal distribution P 3 : Beta distribution No Intermediate variables w(p) = max(g 1, g 2 ) SymbolCategoryUncertainty ModelTrue Value p1p1 IIΔ=[0, 1]p 1 =0.5 p2p2 IIINormal, -2≤E[p 2 ]≤1, 0.5≤V[p 2 ]≤1.1E[p 2 ]=0, V[p 2 ]=1 p3p3 IIIBeta, 0.6 ≤ E[p 3 ] ≤ 0.8, 0.02 ≤ V[p 3 ] ≤ 0.04E[p 3 ]=0.7, V[p 3 ]=0.03 True distribution of G 1

Assumption and Approaches Assumption The distribution of each uncertain parameter is modeled as a uniform distribution. Approaches 1)Bayesian based approach 2)CDF matching approach 3)Prioritized Observation UQ approach 5

Bayesian Based Approach Uncertainty models θ are updated by Bayesian inference Marginal distribution of each parameter θ i is obtained by integration Each marginal distribution (posterior) is obtained by Markov Chain Monte Carlo (MCMC) method as a sample distribution. 6 θ : set of uncertain parameters x 1,obs : 1 st set of observations P(θ) : prior distribution L(θ|x 1,obs ) : likelihood function f(θ|x 1,obs ) : posterior distribution

CDF Matching Approach 7 eCDF using given observations

CDF Matching Approach 8 DIRECT optimizer is used (Finkel et al.)

Prioritized Observation UQ Both performance metrics measure risk. Refining the UQ based on amount of risk attached to an observation. Similar strategy as the CDF matching method except the objective function is weighted modified KS statistic. 9 W R is weight of the observation according to the risk associated with it. –Could be decided based on the J 2 value. –Implementation is very expensive in order to find J 2 using Monte Carlo. –Exploring Importance sampling or surrogate based strategies for future work.

Posterior distributions updated by using 20 observations 20 observations of G 1 are used. Initially, the mean and variance P 2 are most uncertain (wider ranges). While MCMC reduced the range of mean and variance of P 2, the ranges of other parameters remain.  makes sense! Toy Problem Results: Posterior Distributions using Bayesian approach 10 True Value

Primary objectives 17 Effect of reduced sub-parameter bounds on intermediate variable uncertainty Fix parameter values without error in intermediate variables Effect of reduced bounds on range of values of interest, J 1 and J 2 Fix parameter values without error in range of J 1 or J 2

Empirical estimate of p-box of intermediate variable, x. −Using double-loop Monte Carlo simulation. −Sample sub-parameter values within the bounds and subsequent parameter realizations. Reduce the range of sub-parameters by 25% and repeat the above process. −Reduce upper bound. −Increase lower bound. −Centered reduction. Intermediate Variable Sensitivity 18 Sensitivity analysis based on changes in the bounds of a variable, rather than its value. Average change in the area of the p-box brought about by these three reductions is a measure of sensitivity of these bounds. A initial A revised

J 1 and J 2 Range Sensitivity 19 -For J 1 and J 2, we use the range of values from Monte Carlo simulation -Surrogate models are used to reduce computation of J 1 and J 2 -Parameters are ranked based on each parameter’s sensitivity on J 1 and J 2 using a rank sum score

Fixing Parameter Values 20 We use DIRECT global optimization to maximize the remaining uncertainty (either p-box area or J 1 /J 2 range) while fixing a single parameter. We generate an initial large random sample of all parameters and replace one parameter with a constant. We fix parameters where the optimized uncertainty measure is close to the initial value

Toy Problem Results 21 Monte Carlo simulation introduces some error, as should be expected. Able to accurately rank the sensitivities of each of the parameter bounds, and suggests fixing unimportant parameters at reasonable values.

Tasks C & D: Uncertainty Propagation & Extreme Case Analysis 23

Primary objectives Uncertainty Propagation –Find the range of J1 and J2 Extreme Case Analysis –Find the epistemic realizations that yield extreme J1 and J2 values –Find a few representative realizations of x leading to J2 > 0 24

Double Loop Sampling (DLS) Double Loop Monte Carlo Sampling (DLS) –Parameter Loop – samples sub-parameters (epistemic uncertainty) 31 distribution parameters –Probability Loop – samples parameters (aleatory uncertainty) 17 parameters (p’s) –Challenges: Computationally expensive 25

Efficient Reliability Re-Analysis (ERR) (Importance Sampling Method) Full double loop MCS is infeasible. –Black box function g = f(x,d baseline ) is computationally expensive Instead of re-evaluating the constraints at each epistemic realization we weigh existing points based on likelihood. –Not importance sampling in traditional sense (i.e. No “important” region”). How do we handle fixed but unknown constants that lie within given interval? –Generate initial p samples over entire range, [0,1] –Use narrow normal distribution as “true” pdf p i ~ N(θ i,0.25θ i ) 26 [1] Farizal, F., and Efstratios Nikolaidis.

Optimized Parameter Sampling 27

Validation of ERR Method on Toy Problem This shows that ERR method performed well when compared to the more expensive DLS method for the toy problem. Method usedDLSERROptimization with ERR Range of J 1 [-0.10, 4.71][-0.11, 4.50][-0.10, 5.22] Range of J 2 [0.23, 0.94][0.13, 0.92][0.11,1] An MCS was performed using the epistemic realizations from the optimization. [-0.10, 4.82] [0.22, 0.96]

Results of DLS for NASA problem Results show a significant reduction in range of J1 –Can we trust these results with such a small sample size? 29 Range of J 1 Range of J 2 Given uncertainty model [0.02, 5.19][0.08, 0.70] [0.03, 1.11][0.16, 0.76] It was only possible to use a small number of samples due to computational time required –400 samples of the epistemic uncertainty –1,000 samples of the aleatory uncertainty

Results of ERR method: NASA problem ERR results didn’t correspond very well with the DLS results. 30 MethodRange of J 1 Range of J 2 DLS [0.02, 5.19][0.08, 0.70] ERR [0, 2.72][0, 1] DLS with x to g 5 th order PRS Surrogate [11.01, 33.26][0.36, 0.78]

Limitations of current Importance sampling based approach Good agreement with double loop sampling results for the toy problem but not for NASA problem. Hypothesized that poor performance of the importance sampling based approach is due to: –Difficulty in creating initial set of samples with good coverage in 21 dimensional space (limited samples). –Fixed but unknown constant parameters that were modeled using narrow normal distributions. Possible fix: –Dimensionality reduction by fixing the parameters through sensitivity analysis. –Use of surrogates to reduce computational time. 31

Summary Uncertainty Quantification using a given set of samples was successfully performed using a Bayesian approach and a CDF matching approach. P-box / reduction in range was used as the criterion to decided the sensitivity of the parameters. An importance sampling based approach was utilized for uncertainty propagation and extreme case analysis. A simpler toy problem was used validate all our methods, increasing our confidence in the methods. 32

Task B Summary 39 Evaluating sensitivity using p-box and range as a metric to quantify changes Surrogate models are utilized to reduce the computational expense of the double loop simulation Parameter values are fixed by optimizing the remaining uncertainty using DIRECT global optimization Refined models are requesting based on the rank sum score of each parameter for both values of interest, J 1 and J 2 Though the Monte Carlo simulation and surrogate models introduce errors through approximation, our simple toy problem suggests this method is still adequate to provide rankings of parameter sensitivity

Other Methods That Were Tried… P-box Convolution Sampling –Requires replacing distributional p-box with free p-box Failure Domain Bounding (Homothetic Deformations) –NASA UQ toolbox for Matlab has steep learning curve –Theoretical background is challenging Replacing x to g function with surrogates –Requires 8 surrogates (one for each constraint function) in 5 dimensional space –Exploration of functions indicates delta function type behavior that is difficult to fit with surrogate –Attempts at creating PRS and Kriging surrogates results in poor accuracy 10 / 10 40
