Standard sample size in Monte Carlo Simulations
« on: April 20, 2021, 12:26:27 am »

Beginning from Pathfinder 2018.3, it is possible to run Monte Carlo Simulations to handle the uncertainties associated with the statistical distribution followed for occupant attributes. Is there any standard value for sample size that we can follow for fire in institutional buildings? Or any reference work from where we can get an idea about the choice of sample size for different scenarios?
