Building confidence in materials modeling using statistics

Rose Hansen/LLNL

LLNL statisticians, computational modelers, and materials scientists have been developing a statistical framework for researchers to better assess the relationship between model uncertainties and experimental data. The Livermore-developed statistical framework is intended to assess sources of uncertainty in strength model input, recommend new experiments to reduce those sources of uncertainty, and evaluate how existing sources of uncertainty in strength models impact physics codes that rely on those models.
