AA&S 2019 Training – How Do You Verify the Accuracy of Engineering Simulations?
Abstract: This 2-hour training course will review strategies for verifying the accuracy of engineering simulation data, including best practices and common pitfalls engineers may encounter when assessing the quality of their engineering simulation results. The course will focus on the four key quality of solution checks that should be performed to confirm solution verification of detailed stress results. We will examine a variety of publicly-available and industry-applicable case studies, benchmarks and industry examples, to determine the most efficient and reliable methodologies to perform solution verification.
Originally presented as a training course at the 2019 AA&S/PS&S conference in Washington, D.C.

The software provides a highly reliable and user-friendly production stress analysis tool that will replace the Finite Element Method (FEM) tools and failure criteria the experts currently employ for analyzing bonded joints. The software includes an FEM-based handbook format, which allows non-experts to utilize models prepared by specialists. The handbook problems include built-in failure criteria, geometric and material nonlinearities, and the modern FEM technology provides better error control and the treatment of very large aspect ratios.”
