Here simulation analysis will be performed with the Simply Supported Beam model.

Creation of a physical model

A physical model has to be defined to link the evaluator with the inputs.

Creation of the physical model.


Monte Carlo simulation

The model previously defined is used to preform a Monte Carlo simulation. A Simulation analysis is started.

Wizard of the analysis.


The Monte Carlo simulation is performed using 100 samples.

Execution time

The execution time of a Simulation depends mainly from the number of samples, the use of parallel processing and the performance of the computer used.

A simulation was run with 100 samples using an Intel Pentium D 3.00 GHz processor. The execution time for several software is listed in the table below.
