Welcome to VANESSA Validation of Numerical Engineering Simulations: Standardisation Actions
VANESSA is a support and standardisation action within the European Commission's 7th Framework
Programme - NMP Theme under Grant Agreement No. NMP3-SA-2012-319116
A CEN Workshop Agreement on the validation of
computational solid mechanics models has been developed. The validation methodology is based on comparisons to strain fields from calibrated
optical measurement systems.
Inter-Laboratory Studies (ILS) have been conducted to provide evidence that the
reference material - for calibrationof optical systems for strain field measurement - and the validationprotocol - for
computational solid mechanics models - form a solid basis for future standardization.
