MOTIVATE is an Innovation Action within the European Commission's Horizon 2020 Clean Sky 2 program under Grant Agreement No. 754660.

Our team involves Airbus Operations SAS as Topic Manager as well as University of Liverpool (the Coordinator), EmpaDantec Dynamics GmbHand Athena Research and Innovation Center as Beneficiaries.

The goal of the project is to deploy a CEN validation method to numerical results from FE simulations of a subcomponent test based on measurements using Digital Image Correlation. Results of this test at Airbus UK as well as preliminary tests at Empa will be documented on this website. There is a Knowledge Exchange workshop planned for 2019 to present and discuss the latest relevant findings.

From our research, we expect progress on methods for DIC calibration and model validation, notably on measuring the quality of data comparison.

The work is based on a Support Action that was conducted in the FP7 project VANESSA.

Now if you are new to the field of validation or want to consult related documents, you will find relevant publications and presentations on this website.
