4th Workshop on Validation
After Shanghai 2011, London 2013 and Munich 2014, the Fourth International Workshop on Validation of Computational Mechanics Models will be held in Zurich, Switzerland, on November 5th, 2019. Keynote Speakers include Linden Harris (Airbus UK), Anna Pandolfi (Politecnico di Milano) and Yakov Ben-Haim (Technion).
The Call for Papers for this workshop is open with a submission deadline of May 31st, 2019.
Session one: Credible Models for Engineering Decision-Making
Keynote: The assessment of smarter testing for credibility and maturity
Linden Harris, Airbus UK
Session two: Validation of multi-physics models of engineering systems
Keynote: Validation of multiphysics models: from the material scale to the boundary value problem
Anna Pandolfi, Politecnico di Milano
Session three: The Future of Experimental Data for Model Trustworthiness
Keynote: As our Island of Knowledge Grows, so Does the Shore of our Ignorance
Yakov Ben-Haim, Technion
Testing the methodology at Empa
The Airbus panel was brought to a convenient size of about 1 m2 by waterjet cutting. The ends were potted to allow force introduction through the platen of the testing machine. The geometry of the panel was controlled in order to update the numerical model for simulation. Finally, a self-adhesive speckle pattern was glued onto the outside of the test panel for DIC deformation measurements.
