IMA 2013 UQ: Bayesian Calibration of Molecular Dynamics Simulations for Composite Materials Properties
28 May 2014 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Paul N. Patrone
In this talk, I discuss ongoing research whose goal is to determine, via Bayesian inference, an ensemble of inputs that represents a class of commercially important amine-cured epoxies. We...
IMA 2013 UQ: DFT-based Thermal Properties: Three Levels of Error Management
02 Apr 2014 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Kurt Lejaeghere
It is often computationally expensive to predict finite-temperature properties of a crystal from density-functional theory (DFT). The temperature-dependent thermal expansion coefficient α, for...
