Interconnection with SCRAM by transferred XML files permits stochastic calculation of uncertainty factors for cut sets.


scram.uncertainty(DF, ntrials=1000, nbin=20, show=c(FALSE, FALSE))



A fault tree dataframe such as returned from ftree.make or related add... functions. Fault tree basic elements must be either probability or exposed types, INHIBIT gates will be converted to AND. Fault tree shall not contain PRIORITY, ALARM nor VOTE gates, voting is [to be] handled by the atleast gate type.


The quantity of stochastic trials to be run for analysis.


The number of histogram bins to accumulate output results. This specification will also set the number of quantiles calculated.


A logigal vector determining whether to display [1] a histogram or [2] a plot of upper and lower bounds by quantile obtained from uncertainty analysis.


"And one ring to bind them all ..." This function calls ftree2mef, callSCRAM, and readSCRAMuncertainty appropriately for the entered ftree object. Temporary files for SCRAM input and output are produced in the process. Graphical output is generated from readSCRAMuncertainty. For larger models with extensive trials additional graphics calls should be more efficiently made on readSCRAMuncertainty directly.


Returns a list containing $probability, $quantiles, and $histogram data from uncertainty analysis.
