UMRIDA Workshop on Uncertainty Quantification

Application of UQ methods accounting for a large number of simultaneous uncertainties

15th to 16th April 2015

TU Delft

The Netherlands

Workshop Objectives

The focus of the UMRIDA workshop on Uncertainty Quantification (UQ) lies on the application of UQ techniques to test cases with a large number of uncertainties. The overall objective is the assessment and application of UQ methods capable of fulfilling the following quantitative objective, which can also be regarded as a challenge to all workshop participants:

Development and application of UQ methods for a large number of uncertainties (~10) within an acceptable CPU return time of 10 hours on no more than 100 cores parallel processors.”

These test cases are part of a unique validation database with prescribed uncertainties, built within the UMRIDA consortium. A series of test cases such as rotors, wing-bodies, high-lift systems and airfoils are open to participants from outside the consortium.

Participants from academia and industry are welcome to participate in the quantitative challenge on one or several of the proposed test cases!

Besides the participation to the open test cases, participants can contribute with presentations on:

· Application of UQ to industrial relevant configuration

· New developments in the field UQ

The program will be completed by applications of UQ methods to multidisciplinary industrial test cases including aero-acoustics, fluid-structure interaction, turbine cooling or combustion from professionals from inside the consortium and by invited speakers who are addressing state-of-the art research in the field of uncertainty quantification.
