Course - Stochastic Theory of Sealoads - TMR4235
TMR4235 - Stochastic Theory of Sealoads
Transformation of random variables. Monte Carlo simulation. Probability distributions for response. Parameter-estimation. Extreme-value statistics. Stochastic processes. Auto- and cross-correlation functions. Spectra and cross-spectra. Differentiation of stochastic processes. Excitation-response of stochastic processes. Response-statistics.
To demonstrate detailed knowledge of the basic principles and methods which are used to describe stochastic processes with the emphasis on the applications to sealoads and motions of marine systems. To show detailed knowledge of statistical methods and of the basis for description of stochastic processes. This includes detailed knowledge of the topics given in the academic content. To be able to make simple calculations of stochastic loads on and responses of marine structures. To document mastering of the concepts and terminology which are used in statistical methods and for description of stochastic processes and how this is applied in marine technology.
Learning methods and activities
Lectures and exercises. 75% of the exercises are mandatory and have to be approved in order to take the exam. Examination papers will be given in English only. Students are free to choose Norwegian or English for written assessments.
Further on evaluation
Portfolio assessment is the basis for the grade in the course. The portfolio includes a final written exam (70%) and term test (30%). The results for the parts are given in %-scores, while the entire portfolio is assigned a letter grade.
Postponed/repeated exams may be oral.
For a re-take of an examination, all assessments during the course must be re-taken.
Compulsory activities from previous semester may be approved by the department.
Recommended previous knowledge
