ASME Verification and Validation Symposium

February 15, 2017

Attend this unique conference dedicated to the practice of verification, validation & uncertainty quantification (VVUQ) in complex modelling and simulation from May 3 – 5, 2017, at the Westin Las Vegas Hotel, Las Vegas.

Connecting the Computational Modeling and Simulation Community

  • Showcase and exchange ideas, methods and solutions in VVUQ from diverse industries.
  • Meet and interact with V&V specialists from leading international organizations.
  • Come early for a deeper dive and attend one of the VVUQ seminars running May 1-2, 2017.
  • Focus on your technical interest – technical tracks include advanced manufacturing (additive and subtractive, including application of VVUQ to predictive and hybrid models), aerospace, applied mechanics, bioengineering, defense applications, oil & gas and other energy systems applications, robotics, medical devices, nanotechnology, and nuclear engineering, and others.

V&V 50 V&V of Computational Modeling for Advanced Manufacturing

Charter: To provide procedures for verification, validation, and uncertainty quantification in modeling and computational simulation for advanced manufacturing.

  • UL staff are participating on this committee, along with other members from industry (e.g. Boeing, Zimmer Biomet, Rolls Royce, Bosch LLC); research (GE Global Research, SwRI); academia (MIT, Vanderbilt, Purdue) and government (NIST, DOE, AFRL)
  • 5 working groups have been formed to explore various topics:
    • Terminology, Concepts, Relationships and Taxonomy for VVUQ in Advanced Manufacturing.
    • V&V Interactions with the Model Life Cycle
    • VVUQ Challenges and Methods in Systems of Models
    • VVUQ Applications in Process Technologies
    • VVUQ Methods in Data-driven and Hybrid models
  • There will be a dedicated technical session at the V&V Symposium on updates of the work of these V&V 50 working groups.
