New Formulation and Methodologies for Model Based Design

Presented by Computers and Information Systems
March 15, 2 p.m. Eastern time

Presenter: Zhimin Xi, assistant professor, Rutgers University 

To date, engineering product design relies significantly on computer simulation models (e.g., finite element analysis (FEA)) to predict product performance of interest given a set of design configurations. Model prediction could be problematic without referring to the corresponding test data because all models are built to approximate the real physical systems with some assumptions and simplifications.
