Validation and verification procedures

The paper refers to aspects related to benchmark studies, validation, and verification (V&V) of structural connections. The considerations emphasize questions encountered in the V&V process, principles of comparison of numerical results and experimental data, and the importance of sensitivity study.

The article brings new ideas regarding the relationship between the research and designing a finite element model, differences between the Component-based model and the Design finite element model. The V&V is demonstrated on the modeling of the T-stub and on buckling of the compressed stiffener.

The work was published in 2014 by the team of prof. Frantisek Wald, Leslaw Kwasniewski, Lukas Gödrich, Marta Kurejkova from the Czech Technical University in Prague.  
The work was presented at the 12th International Conference on Steel, Space and Composite Structures, May 2014, Prague, Czech Republic.
