# Tutorial 5 – Random fields

In this tutorial we use Fesslix for

The tutorial is structured as follows:

*random field discretization*.The tutorial is structured as follows:

Overview

- Tutorial 5a: one-dimensional standard Normal random field
- Tutorial 5b: inhomogeneous one-dimensional log-Normal random field
- Tutorial 5c: 2D FE-plate with spatially uncertain Young's modulus

The theory of the employed random field discretization methods is presented in [1].
