Risk assessment is an important and significant aid in the decision making process. Risk assessment is performed using ‘model’ and a model is a function of parameters which are usually affected by uncertainty. Some model parameters are affected by aleatory uncertainty and some others are affected by epistemic uncertainty. In this paper we propose a hybrid method to deal with propagation of both kinds of uncertainty within the same computation of risk.
