VKI Lecture Series STO-AVT-236 on Uncertainty Quantification on Computational Fluid Dynamics

The availability of powerful computational resources and general‐purpose numerical algorithms creates increasing opportunities to perform flow simulations in complex systems. This raises several questions: How accurate are the resulting predictions? Are the mathematical and physical models correct? Do we have sufficient information to define relevant operating conditions? In general, how can we establish “error bars” on the results?

At the interface between physics, mathematics, probability and optimization, there have been significant advances in uncertainty quantification (UQ) efforts in computational science over the past decade. This two-day lecture series will present an introduction to UQ in computational fluid dynamics, including lectures on novel methods for optimization under uncertainty and applications.

These lecture series sponsored by the Science & Technology Organization Educational Programme (STO 326) is co-organised by Professor Catherine Gorlé from Stanford University, Professor Gianluca Iaccarino from Stanford University and Professor Thierry Magin from the von Karman Institute for Fluid Dynamics.
