Specify a percent of the response variance that should be captured with the random field representation. THIS IS AN EXPERIMENTAL CAPABILITY.


Alias: none

Argument(s): REAL


This control allows the user to specify the percent variance to be capture in the random field representation (e.g. either a Karhunen-Loeve or Principal Components expansion). Typically, the user would specify something like 0.9 or 0.95, where 0.9 means that 90% of the variance of the response field will be captured by the random field. THIS IS AN EXPERIMENTAL CAPABILITY UNDER ACTIVE DEVELOPMENT.

Default Behavior If the user specifies neither trunction_tolerance nor expansion_bases, then the truncation tolerance is set to 0.95 and the number of expansion bases that captures 95% of the variance will be used.
