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


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)
