Optimal Design with Non-normally Distributed Random Parameters, Conditional Probability, and Joint Constraint Reliabilities: a Case Study in Vehicle Emissions Regulations to Achieve Ambient Air Quality Standards

Abstract

Making appropriate environmental policy decisions requires considering various sources of uncertainty. An air pollution example is formulated as a design optimization problem with probabilistic constraints, also referred to as reliability-based design optimization (RBDO). Environmental applications with a large number of constraints and significant model… (More)
