Probability Distributions

Uniform and Normal Distributions- Week 7

1

Probability Distributions

It has been observed that certain functions F(x)

and f(x) can successfully express the

distributions of many random variables.

roles in engineering as in numerous other

disciplines. The more important ones are:

Uniform,

Normal,

Exponential,

Gamma,

Beta,

Weibull,

Lognormal distributions.

3

the distribution function?

There are no general rules for this.

The engineer has to make a choice based on his

experience and knowledge as regards the

properties of the commonly used distribution.

4

data with the chosen probability density

function helps in the decision making.

Uniform Distribution

The simplest type of continuous distribution is

the uniform. As implied by the name, the pdf is

constant over a given interval (for example,

from a to b, where a < b).

f(x)=constant, F(x)=cx; c is constant.

random variable X on the interval [A, B] is

1/(31)

has a uniform distribution on the interval [0, 4].

Normal Distributions

The normal distribution arose originally in the

study of experimental errors.

between observations when an experiment is

repeated under similar conditions.

telecommunication engineering and elsewhere

when referring to the difference between the true

state of nature and the signal received.

The uncertainties which are manifest in the errors

may arise from different causes that are not easily

identifiable.

probability density function:

It has two parameters: X and X .

Normal distribution is symmetrical (Cs=0), with a kurtosis

coefficient equal to 3 (K=3).

symmetry.

and = 5, then the ordinates n(x; 50, 5) can be

computed for various values of x and the curve

drawn.

Example: Lets draw to two normal distribution

functions having the same mean but different

standart deviations such as n(x; 0, 1) and n(x;

0.5, 1) on the axis x=[-3 3].

function F(x) of the normal distribution cannot be

obtained by integration, but is tabulated

numerically.

A single table for the normal distribution can be

prepared by standardizing the random variable

as follows

Z ( X X ) / X

mean 0 and standard deviation 1. The distribution

N(0,1) of the variable Z is called the STANDARD

NORMAL DISTRIBUTION.

The probabilities of the normal variable to remain in the

intervals around the mean of width one, two and three

standard deviations are equal to 0.683, 0.955 and 0.9975

What is ?

The standard deviation can be computed as X=X0.84 X or X= X -X0.16 because the probability of the

normal variable to remain in an interval of two

standard deviations around the mean is about 0.68.

The buyer sets specifications for the diameter to be 3.0 0.01 cm. The implication is that no part

falling outside these specifications will be accepted. It is known that in the process the diameter of

a ball bearing has a normal distribution with mean = 3.0 and standard deviation = 0.005. On

average, how many manufactured ball bearings will be scrapped?

is not within the specification 1.50 d. It is known that this measurement is

of the sample to 0 (its absolute value below

0.10 or 0.05) and that of the kurtosis coefficient

K to 3 (between 2.5 and 3.5) are further checks.

3. If the data pass these tests, the assumption

of the normal distribution can be tested by

statistical tests to be discussed in Chapter 6.

many cases because the variable is skewed.

Most hydrologic variables (such as the

discharge in a stream, the precipitation depth

at a location) are NOT symmetrically

distributed.

For such variables, distributions other than

normal must be used.

Exercises

Given a standard normal distribution, find the

value of k such that

(a) P(Z > k) = 0.2946;

(b) P(Z < k) = 0.0427;

(c) P(0.93 < Z < k) = 0.7235.

The load of a footing consists of the sum of the dead load and moving load. These loads are assumed to

be random variables.

The dead load X has the mean 100 t, standard deviation 10 t. The moving load Y has the mean 40 t,

standard deviation 10 t.

The design load corresponds to the risk of exceedance of 5%. Let us determine the design load

assuming that loads follow the normal distribution.

u=100+40=140t

u==14.1t

Ud= u+1.65 u=140+1.6514.1=163t

Water is transmitted from A to B by two parallel

pipelines. The capacities of these pipelines are

assumed to be normal variables with parameters:

X = 5 m3/s

CvX = 0.10

Y = 8 m3/s

CvY = 0.15

below 12 m3/s.

49

u=5+8=13t

u==1.3m3/s

F(-0.77)=F1(0.77)=0.2206

The probability of discharge less than 12m 3/s is

0.2206
