The model needs to be based on an established factor structure, where the relationships between factors, and between items are known, if these conditions are met a Monte Carlo simulation can be conducted based on established sample size determination conventions (23, 24), such as power (0.80) and alpha (p = 0.05).
The objective of this paper is to present the evolution of the Monte Carlo simulation technique for design flood estimation in Australia.
However, if a moderate-to-strong correlation or causality between the variables is believed to be present, Monte Carlo simulations are readily adapted using additional advanced techniques to incorporate this co-variation.

Verification by Monte Carlo Simulations. Because there are no exact solutions of nonlinear systems (3) and (4), the Monte Carlo simulation is the only method that can be used to verify the accuracy of the proposed approach.
Monte Carlo simulation is a method in which we assighn probability distributions to the input variables (critical factors) and, on that basis, we calculate output variables and the probability of their occurence.
In Monte Carlo simulations the protection criterion was derived from 3GPP TS 36.104, according to it the probability of interference (PoI) less than 5 % was considered to be a sufficient protection level.
However, we observed no substantial bias in our Monte Carlo simulations. This may be attributable to our focus on potential errors in characterizing PWD water concentrations, which are shared exposure sources, rather than simulating independent exposure measurement errors.
There are many powerful commercial software packages that will perform Monte Carlo simulations. These tools can be expensive and often require training.
As part of the risk register, project teams also use quantitative risk management tools like Monte Carlo simulations to measure the likelihood and impact of risks.
According to the company with its OneSumX Financial Risk solution, CDC has been able to calculate Value at Risk (VaR) at a confidence level of 99.99% in less than 24 hours using dynamic Monte Carlo simulations with up to one million scenarios.
