Model Validation & Uncertainty Quantification
The purpose of the Technical Division on Model Validation and Uncertainty Quantification (MV&UQ) shall be to provide maximum technical benefits to its members by:
Model Validation and Uncertainty Quantification Division - Updated May 2013
The TD enjoyed a successful year with a strong presence at IMAC XXXI and solid attendance at the TD meeting. In total the TD were responsible for 5 sessions featuring 25 papers, 2 tutorials (by Prof. James Beck & Prof. Yakov Ben-Haim) and a round-table discussion. TD members also ran the pre-conference course “Verification and Validation Hands-on Training”. As part of the TD meeting officer elections the next two-year term was conducted.
In 2014, we would like to propose there is an MVU&Q thread throughout the conference to avoid sessions clashing.
During the TD meeting, following sessions are discussed:
Uncertainty in Coupled Models/Structures Sez Atamturktur
Uncertainty Quantification in Structural Dynamics Costas Papadimitriou
Uncertainty Quantification in Transmission Simulators
Joint session with Sub-structuring TD (Randy Mayes) Tyler Schoenherr
UQ Tutorial: Possibly Ben Thacker, Brian Williams Sez Atamturktur
Applications (General Session) Kurt Schneider
Robustness to Lack of Knowledge Scott Cogan
Bayesian Methods for Model Calibration (possibly a tutorial session) Rob Barthorpe
Bayesian Statistics Tutorial TBD
Uncertainty Quantification for Diagnostics/Prognostics Eric Hernandez
Introduction to Model Validation Tutorial Francois Hemez
Round Robin/Benchmark – Comparing UQ Tools
Suggestion to Develop during 2013, looking to session in 2015 conference Scott Cogan/ Sez Atamturktur/ Francois Hemez
Calibration of coupled models new techniques/applications TBD
Examples of V&V Projects
