Facilities & Capabilities

State-of-the-art simulation software and facilities

The EPSRC and ESRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Quantification and Management of Risk & Uncertainty in Complex Systems & Environments (CDT) is hosted by the Institute of Risk and Uncertainty in the University of Liverpool.  CDT students therefore have access to state-of-the art simulation software and facilities.  

One of the Institute’s key products is the general purpose software COSSAN-X for uncertainty and risk quantification. The software provides state-of-the-art simulation techniques as well as robust and reliable product life-cycle solutions, efficient and realistic analysis and optimisation solutions. Find out more

The University’s Virtual Engineering Centre, in partnership with the Institute of Risk and Uncertainty, has a unique approach to developing and integrating Virtual Engineering (VE) technology innovations across the product life-cycle to deliver powerful solutions to business and research organisations. Combining in-house and partner expertise with emerging technologies, the Virtual Engineering Centre is the only centre of its kind which fully supports and delivers accelerated development of new products, technologies and processes across the product life-cycle, reducing risk, maximising efficiency and sustainability.
