NEW YORK, March 8, 2013 – A conference dedicated entirely to verification, validation and uncertainty qualification of engineering-based computer simulations will be hosted by ASME (American Society of Mechanical Engineers), this May, in Las Vegas, Nev.

The ASME 2013 Verification and Validation Symposium (V&V 2013), set for May 22-24 at the Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino in Las Vegas, will convene engineers and scientists from a wide range of disciplines to discuss methodologies for the verification of codes and solutions and simulation validation, as well as review the latest ideas for assessing uncertainties in mathematical models, computational solutions, and experimental data.

Consisting of plenary sessions and technical paper presentations, V&V 2013 will report on best practices for verification and validation and new approaches, as well as future ideas and challenges. The symposium will feature a cross-disciplinary format, attracting technical professions from around the world and from diverse industry sectors including nuclear power, thermal and fluid mechanics, structural analysis, automotive, materials engineering, combustion, shock and vibration, energy systems, oil and gas, space science and astrophysics, medical device design, and others.

Presenters at V&V 2013 include technical experts from Bechtel, Northrup Grumman, Westinghouse, ANSYS, NASA, Southwest Research Institute, Sandia National Laboratories, and other leading organizations that apply verification and validation models in computer-based engineering simulations.
