15th International Conference on Computational Methods and Experimental Measurements (CMEM 2011)
|Event Date/Time: May 31, 2011||End Date/Time: Jun 02, 2011|
The main scope of the meeting is to provide the international technical and scientific community with a forum to discuss the interaction and the complementary aspects of computational methods and experimental measurements, the main consideration and importance being their advantageous integration.
It is well known that the stable progress in computer efficiency and numerical techniques are producing a steady growth of computational simulations which nowadays influence both an ever-widening range of engineering problems, as well as our everyday activities. As these simulations are continuously expanding and improving, there still exists the necessity of their validation, which can only be accomplished by performing dedicated experimental tests. Furthermore, because of their incessant development, experimental techniques are becoming more complex and sophisticated so that both their running and data collection can only be performed by means of computers. Finally, it must be stressed that, for the majority of the measurements, the obtained data must be processed by means of numerical methods.
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.
