SimCenter at 2019 USACM Conference

Published on February 18, 2019



The NHERI SimCenter participated at the U.S. Association for Computational Mechanics (USACM) Uncertainty Quantification in Computational Solid and Structural Materials Modeling Workshop, held on January 17-18, 2019, at Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore, MD.

Sanjay Govindjee, SimCenter’s principal investigator and co-director, presented information about the SimCenter in his talk entitled “NSF NHERI SimCenter at Berkeley: An Application Opportunity for UQ Researchers.”

Also, Fei Ding, a PhD student working with Professor Ahsan Kareem of the SimCenter leadership team, presented her poster, “Inflow and Model-Form Uncertainty Quantification in CFD Using Surrogate Models.”

The aim of the two-day thematic workshop was to bring together prominent scholars in solid and structural mechanics, materials science and applied mathematics with a shared interest in uncertainty quantification and computational material modeling to exhibit the state-of-the-art research, collectively identify existing and future challenges, and promote promising new ideas in the field.
