Determining of the uncertainty of calculations in the case of models nonlinearly dependent on their parameters
MetadataShow full item record
The problem of determining the uncertainty of results of calculations carried out e.g. during expert.s activities within the reconstruction of road accidents has been addressed in this paper. The total differential formula that is often used to estimate the uncertainty of calculation results has the from of a Taylor series where the terms comprising higher-order partial derivatives have been omitted. Then, a question arises whether the omission of these terms, if they exist, may have a considerable impact on the accuracy of uncertainty calculation results. The effect of the omission of these terms has been analysed in this paper with taking as an example the estimation of uncertainty of the stopping distance of a braking motorcycle. It has been found that in the case of mathematical models where the final nonlinearly depends on model parameters, the differences ontained may be significant.
