About this event

In recent years numerical methods have been increasingly used for design. There have been no guidelines for the use of such methods and yet there is the potential for errors to occur.

The talk discusses how such methods have become integrated within the design process and highlights how problems might arise. It goes on to discuss how such problems might be avoided and how the use of numerical methods might be managed.
