Paper Title:
Application and Implementation of Monte Carlo Method in Mechanical Engineering
  Abstract

As a powerful tool for scientific research, Monte Carlo simulation has been utilized widely in mechanical engineering for a long time. The paper reviews the application in statistical tolerance analysis, reliability design and analysis, uncertainty analysis in mechanical measurement, robot error, position and attitude analysis, and optimum design. The implementation of Monte Carlo method is also discussed and classified into three types: using Monte Carlo simulation software directly, programming in the development environment with random number generator, and programming from the basic random number generation. Finally, the authors points out using Monte Carlo software directly is recommend because the engineer needn’t concern the detail of the complex computation and can pay more attention to the purpose of the mechanical application.
