1st KE Workshop

This International Workshop on the Validation of Computational Mechanics Models was the second after Shanghai 2011. The workshop was held at the British Museum in London on the 5th of November, 2013 and was hosted by the VANESSA Project. Keynote speakers for the event were Erwin Hack (EMPA, CH), Charlotte Werndl (London School of Economics, UK) and Althea de Souza (Tridiagonal Solutions, UK). Other speakers and panellists included representative from the aerospace and nuclear industry. Presentations from the workshop can be accessed below.
