Verification and Validation Team Members

The NPARC Alliance Verification and Validation Team consists of all Alliance participants performing verification and validation activities. This may include members of the NPARC User's Association and other users who wish to propose candidate verification and validation problems and submit documentation and results from independent verification and validation efforts.

Verification and Validation Team Coordination

The NPARC Alliance verification and validation effort is being coordinated by Julie C. Dudek at the NASA Glenn Research Center and Ken Tatum at the Arnold Engineering Development Center.

Verification and Validation Team Responsibilities

The responsibilities of the NPARC Alliance Verification and Validation Team include:

  1. Develop and document verification and validation cases for formal verification and validation, respectively, of the WIND code.
  2. Assist the NPARC Alliance Support Team in developing, documenting, and maintaining examples which demonstrate to users how to use the features and capabilities of the WIND code and associated tools for various geometric configurations and flow conditions. Such example cases should reduce the demands on the Support Team by providing will-executed examples.
  3. Assist the NPARC Alliance Development Team in developing, documenting, and maintaining verification cases for verify correct installation and operation of the WIND code after the code has been installed on a new system or modified to improve or add a feature.
  4. Report to the NPARC Alliance Development Team when verification and validation cases indicate a weakness or error in the performance of the WIND code.
  5. Respond to the needs of the NPARC Alliance Support and Development Teams and the NPARC user community to suggestions for further verification and validation cases.
