Presentations Invited for ASTM Workshop on Verification and Validation of Solid Mechanics and Life Prediction Software
Press release date: July 25, 2011
o Experience with application of formalized V&V procedures (ASME V&V Guide 10- 2006, etc.), and "lessons learned" (e.g., what works? what should be changed?);
o Experience with typical V&V techniques - uncertainty quantification, bayesian statistics, etc.;
o User and certifying agency needs and expectations for V&V of life prediction codes; and
o Experience with V&V for Integrated Computational Materials Engineering (ICME). Interested presenters/authors must submit a 250-300 word abstract via e-mail to workshop co-chairman Markus Heinimann (email@example.com) by Jan. 9, 2012. Abstract submitters will be notified of their acceptance for presentation by June 6. For abstract submittal and other related information, visit www.astm.org/E08WKSolid0718.htm.
