Simulation Governance & Management Webinar Slides
Advancements in predictive computational science make it possible to increase reliance of numerical simulation, necessitating fewer physical experiments for substantial savings in time and costs of product development projects. The first and perhaps the most challenging obstacle to full realization of the benefits of predictive computational science is a widespread misunderstanding of what numerical simulation is.
Most managers and many individuals who present themselves as experts in numerical simulation confuse numerical simulation with “finite element modeling” or “numerical modeling“. Those are outdated concepts, responsible for much of the disappointing results that caused widespread loss of confidence in the usefulness and reliability of numerical simulation. Current simulation and data management practices will have to be revised in order to meet the technical requirements of predictive computational science.
The presentation will focus on the central role of simulation governance and management in the coordination of experimental and analytical work necessary for proper use of the tools and techniques of predictive computational science with the objective to maximize the reliability of computed information.

“At DST Group, we have effectively used StressCheck® over the last 10 years to determine accurate stress intensity factors. The results have been used to improve our residual strength and structural life estimates for aircraft in service with the Royal Australian Airforce, including C-130, P-3C and F/A-18 A/B. We have found it to be extremely easy to use and a very versatile code with which to create parametric models.
We have recently used StressCheck® to obtain improved stress intensity factor solutions (Improved stress intensity factors for selected configurations in cracked plates and Improved stress intensity factors for a single corner crack at a loaded fastener hole) for five key generic configurations. These transferable parametric results have been published externally. One specific example is the non-linear contact analysis of a cracked, filled fastener hole, with both fastener and remote plate loading.”
