OpenTURNS is an Open source initiative to Treat Uncertainties, Risksâ??N 
Statistics in a structured industrial approach. 
Since the beginning of 2005, a partnership of three companies has been working 
on building together a tool designed to perform uncertainty treatment and 
reliability analyses.

OpenTURNS is a Unix/Linux software with three main components : 

 - a scientific C++ library including an internal data model and algorithms 
dedicated to the treatment of uncertainties. The main function of that library 
is giving to specific applications all the functionalities needed to treat 
uncertainties in studies. Targeted users are all engineers who want to 
introduce the probabilistic dimension in their so far deterministic studies. 

 - an independent application with a graphical user interface. This 
was built to become the work environment for the specialist of the treatment 
of uncertainties. Targeted users are once again industrial practitioners: 
those who identify the treatment of uncertainties as a full task, which can be 
spread to multiple engineering domains. 

- a python module with high level operators in the probabilistic and 
field. The interest of this language is to be both a powerful scientific 
language (capable of using C++ libraries), and a user friendly interpreted 
language like Matlab(tm) one. This python module was designed to make the 
development of prototypes easier (in order to test new algorithms and methods 
for example), to become an easy-to-use support for educational works, â?¦ This 
module intends to become a natural environment capable of integrating new 
developments within the field of uncertainty and sensitivity analysis. The 
targeted users are here research centres and the academic community.
