The Role of Nondeterminism in Verification and Validation of Computational Solid Mechanics Models 2003-01-1353

Verification and validation (V&V) is an enabling methodology for the development of models that can be used to make engineering predictions with high confidence. Model V&V procedures are needed by government and industry to reduce the time, cost and danger associated with component and full-scale testing of products, materials, and weapons. The development of guidelines and procedures for conducting a V&V program are currently being defined by a broad spectrum of researchers. This paper briefly reviews the main concepts involved in V&V and then focuses on the critical role that nondeterministic analysis plays in the V&V process.
