Monte Carlo Simulation of a Down Hole Dewar Flask

A Dewar flask is used in the oil & gas industry to protect electronics from high temperatures experienced down hole.  As temperatures increase, reliability of electronic components decrease and ultimately fail. We will analyze a Dewar flask design using Monte Carlo simulation of time down hole before an internal flask temperature of 435 Kelvin is …

Integration Using Monte Carlo Simulation

Monte Carlo integration can be used to estimate definite integrals that cannot be easily solved by analytical methods.  There are several methods to apply Monte Carlo integration for finding integrals.  In this article we will cover the basic or ordinary method. Basic Monte Carlo Integration Let’s start with a generic single integral where we want …

Project Critical Path Analysis Using Simulation

Project critical path analysis can be performed using Monte Carlo simulation as a way to determine project completion time probabilities.  In this article, we will create a network diagram in Excel and a table to perform necessary logic operations. We will assume that each task follows the PERT distribution (also called Beta-PERT).  Using past experience, …
