An Analytic Method to Estimate Uncertainty in a Risk Function
This paper presents a method for estimating the uncertainty in a probabilistic risk analysis. Based on the estimation of probability intervals of some basic parameters of a risk function, the method estimates a probability interval for the risk function. An example of risk analysis of releases of flammable materials is shown.
