Recently there is an increasing endeavour to take into account the underlying uncertainties by stochastic modelling in order to make the numerical predictions as realistic as possible. Uncertainty quantification deals with distinct sources of nondeterminism. A lack of knowledge is expressed by epistemic uncertainties while aleatory uncertainties formulate an inherent randomness. In the case of estimating aleatory uncertainty, the task is to infer unknown but fixed probability density function and the corresponding epistemic uncertainty about this estimation. In order to avoid too strict assumptions about the unknown density function (e.g. prescription of a specific parameterised family of probability density functions), it can be modelled hierarchically by a stochastic process via the Bayesian nonparametric approach. The contribution presents application of a Dirichlet process mixture in modelling the aleatory uncertainty.
