The simulation based design (SBD) paradigm is replacing the traditional build-and-test design approach for naval vehicles, and high-fidelity simulations are required in order to guarantee the accuracy of the solution and ensure adequate design decisions. In real-world applications, all the relevant outputs are affected by uncertainty. This stems from operational and environmental parameters, as well as geometrical tolerances, and numerical/modelling errors. The estimate of the output uncertainty is required in order to provide the necessary confidence intervals of the relevant parameters.
