Quality & Reliability of CFD Simulations III: Quantifying Uncertainty
Posted Tue February 13, 2007 @01:07PM
Print version Email story Tweet story
Announcements CFD is increasingly used in engineering design, safety analysis and environmental assessments. A key question which arises is the accuracy of CFD simulation, especially when test or field data is sparse or unavailable.

This seminar brings together current and potential users of CFD to examine the quantification of uncertainty for industrial and environmental applications.

Sponsor CFD Review

Topics of discussion will include:
  • appropriate measures by which to judge the fidelity of industrial & environmental CFD;
  • quantification of uncertainty for CFD applications across a range of sectors;
  • challenges that arise in quantifying uncertainty, and solutions.

Methodologies to obtain reliable and consistent results from CFD are of prime importance in reducing uncertainty. Best practice guidelines can play a key role. The seminar will therefore also discuss best practice across a number of application areas, highlighting findings which have wider relevance and impact.

This will be the third joint meeting on this theme co-organised by NAFEMS and ERCOFTAC. It follows successful meetings in March 2004 and September 2005.
