SROMPy - Stochastic Reduced Order Models with Python

Coverage Status Coverage Status


Python module for generating Stochastic Reduced Order Models (SROMs) and applying them for uncertainty quantification problems. See documentation in docs/ directory for details.


SROMPy is intended for use with Python 2.7 and relies on the following packages:

  • numpy
  • scipy
  • matplotlib
  • mpi4py (optional for running in parallel)
  • pytest (optional if the testing suite is to be run)

Example Usage

from SROMPy.postprocess import Postprocessor
from SROMPy.srom import SROM
from import NormalRandomVariable

#Initialize Normal random variable object to be modeled by SROM:
normal = NormalRandomVariable(mean=3., std_dev=1.5)

#Initialize SROM & optimize to model the normal random variable:
srom = SROM(size=10, dim=1)

#Compare the CDF of the SROM & target normal variable:
post_processor = Postprocessor(srom, normal)

The above code snippet produces the following CDF comparison plot:

Getting Started

The best way to get started with SROMPy is to take a look at the scripts in the examples/ directory. A simple example of propagating uncertainty through a spring mass system can be found in the examples/spring_mass/, while the examples/phm18/ directory contains scripts necessary to reproduce the results in the following conference paper on probabilistic prognostics: For more information, see the source code documentation in docs/SROMPy_doc.pdf (a work in progress) or the technical report below that accompanied the release of SROMPy.


The tests can be performed by running "py.test" from the tests/ directory to ensure a proper installation.
