Statistical analysis related to exceptional snow loads
Sprache des Titels:
In the present paper the favorable fit for exceedances related to the accidental snow loads, described in a companion paper, is studied. In particular, the Hill, t-Hill and modified Hill estimators are used and the quality of their distributional fits is assessed. Also t-estimation methods are considered. Assuming that the data is driven by Pareto or exponential distribution, respectively, the exact likelihood ratio tests for homogeneity to validate the results of regression fits are applied. Further, the statistical dependence between the exceedances and the corresponding altitudes is studied.
