Engineering Design Calculations with Fuzzy Parameters

  title={Engineering Design Calculations with Fuzzy Parameters},
  author={Norm Otto and Erik K. Antonsson},
Uncertainty in engineering analysis usually pertains to stochasticuncertainty,i.e., variance in product or process parameters characterized by probability (uncertainty in truth). Methods for calculating under stochastic uncertainty are well documented. It has been proposed by the authors that other forms of uncertainty exist in engineering design. Imprecision, or the concept of uncertainty in choice, is one such form. This paper considers real-time techniques for calculating with imprecise… CONTINUE READING
