Curriculum Flyer

Join TMS to gain valuable skills and a firm understanding of practices and techniques for the verification, validation, and uncertainty quantification (V&V/UQ) of computational models. A team of nine expert instructors will lead participants through six modules: how to design and implement robust verification and validation practices; code and solution verification; computational uncertainty quantification; quantifying experimental uncertainties for validation assessments; designing validation experiments (combining modeler and experimentalist perspectives); and regulatory agency perspectives, as shown through examples and lessons learned.

This course is firmly grounded in the TMS science and technology accelerator study, Accelerating the Broad Implementation of Verification & Validation in Computational Models of the Mechanics of Materials and Structures. It will cover principles of the topic from the study’s report, research and expertise of the course instructors, and practical examples.

What You Gain

  • Practical working knowledge of the various detailed practices and techniques for the verification, validation, and uncertainty quantification (V&V/UQ) of computational models
  • The value proposition and practical examples of robust V&V/UQ practices
  • References and resources for further in-depth study on V&V/UQ

Who Should Take This Course

  • Anyone involved in projects that include predictive computational modeling, both modelers and experimentalists, who want to gain practical insight and knowledge of various V&V/UQ practices, including industry professionals, researchers, and university students, as well as leaders and managers who would like to have a deeper understanding of V&V/UQ
