Vertex Combination Method for Heat Transfer Analysis of Structures with Uncertain Parameters
State key laboratory of green building materials, China Building Materials Academy, 100024 Beijing, China
Uncertainty is wide-spreads in practical projects which can be solved by interval method. Regarding the temperature field prediction of structures with uncertain parameters, a vertex combination method is presented on the basis of the sampling according to the vertex combinations of interval parameters and monotonic relationship of objective function which can effectively reduce the number of boundary combined samples. A numerical example of heat transfer problems of a panel without thermal resource is used to verify the effectiveness of the proposed method.
