Technical Workshop

801 - How to Build Reliability in the Results of Numerical Modeling

Sunday, June 3
1:30 PM - 5:00 PM
Location: Lakeshore B

Engineering judgments in water and environmental projects are increasingly relying on computational models as an alternative to experimentation. Verification and validation (V&V) and uncertainty quantification (UQ) are set of techniques to provide quantitative insight to the reliability of computational models. This workshop is designed to give the audience a broad view and hands-on experience of V&V and UQ in the context of numerical modeling in water and environmental engineering. An in-depth introduction to the fundamentals of verification procedures in scientific-computing is the first part of the course. Techniques for validation of models based on measurements and validation experiment design are being discussed next. Then, brief review of techniques for quantification of uncertainty due to model, numerical techniques and parameters. The workshop concludes with the emerging techniques of SQA for computational modeling such as “literate programming”, “automation of documentation”, “version control systems”, “reproducibility” etc.
