ESRD’s Dr. Barna Szabó to Deliver Keynote at ASME VVUQ 2023 Symposium
In mid-May 2023, ESRD’s Co-Founder and Chairman Dr. Barna Szabó will deliver a keynote presentation at the ASME VVUQ 2023 Symposium in Baltimore, Maryland, USA. Dr. Szabó’s presentation, entitled “Simulation Governance: An Idea Whose Time Has Come”, will focus on the goals and means of Simulation Governance with reference to mechanical/aerospace engineering practice.
The abstract of the keynote presentation is as follows:
Mathematical models have become indispensable sources of information on which technical and business decisions are based. It is therefore vitally important for decision-makers to know whether or not they should rely on the predictions of a particular mathematical model.
The presentation will focus on the reliability of information generated by mathematical models. Reliability is ensured through proper application of the procedures of verification, validation and uncertainty quantification. Examples will be presented.
It will be shown that mathematical models are products of open-ended evolutionary processes. One of the key objectives of simulation governance is to establish and maintain a hospitable environment for the evolutionary development of mathematical models. A very substantial unrealized potential exists in numerical simulation technology. It is the responsibility of management to establish conditions that will make realization of that potential possible.
Dr. Szabó has published several papers on numerical simulation. He has also published a textbook entitled Finite Element Analysis: Method, Verification and Validation (2nd edition, John Wiley & Sons, Inc. in 2021) that covers the fundamentals of numerical simulation and the technical requirements for numerical simulation software products.
