ASME presents  two Seminars at the 6th Annual ASME Verification and Validation (V&V) Symposium

Engineering systems must increasingly rely on computational simulation for predicted performance, reliability, and safety. Computational analysts, designers, decision makers, and project managers who rely on simulation must have practical techniques and methods for assessing simulation credibility.

Two seminars, led by ASME V&V experts, will run concurrently on May 1-2, 2017, prior to the start of the Symposium on May 3.  CEU (continuing education units)* are awarded upon course completion. 

The following seminars are available for enrollment now. REGISTER HERE

Verification and Validation in Scientific Computing (MC133)

May 1-2, 2017 (Monday-Tuesday), 1.5 CEUs · 15 PDHs
This seminar presents modern terminology and effective procedures for verification of numerical simulations, validation of mathematical models, and an introduction to uncertainty quantification of nondeterministic simulations. The techniques presented in this course are applicable to a wide range of engineering and science applications, including fluid dynamics, heat transfer, solid mechanics, and structural dynamics.

Probabilistic and Uncertainty Quantification Methods for Model Verification & Validation (MC146)

May 1-2, 2017 (Monday-Tuesday), 1.5 CEUs · 15 PDHs
This seminar presents the concepts, methods, approaches, and strategies for characterizing and managing uncertainties within the context of model verification and validation (V&V). Uncertainty quantification methods are presented in-depth followed by simple exercises to reinforce the material. Attendees will learn to use the NESSUS probabilistic analysis software and will apply it throughout the course to gain experience in problem formulation, results interpretation and communication. V&V case studies are discussed to illustrate model development within a V&V framework. Click here for full course description.
