As computer models become more reliable and able to represent more realistic problems, they require detailed data leading to the development of appropriate new types of experiments.
Experimental measurements are themselves conditioned to the requirements of the computational models. Hence it is important that scientists working on experiments communicate with researchers developing computer codes, as well as those carrying out measurements on prototypes. The orderly and progressive concurrent development of all these fields is essential for the progress of engineering sciences.
Scientists working in laboratory and field experiments produce challenging results which require, in many cases, difficult interpretation, leading to the reformulation of the analytical tools used in established computer codes.
