Abstract

Significant challenges exist in the validation and formal acceptance of dynamic stability simulation tools, which can have a limiting effect on operations or concept design due to a need for conservatism. These challenges primarily consist of validation metrics and criteria, uncertainty characterization, and defining the scope of conditions (both environmental and operating) that must be examined in order to ensure that the simulation tool is valid for all conditions of interest. In discussing these challenges, this paper proposes approaches to the problem of validation and formal acceptance that can be applied in future efforts.
