Vinod Sharma Appointed ASME Vice Chair and Presenting at OTC 2018
Mr. Vinod Sharma, Senior Managing Engineer in our Oakland Office, was recently nominated as the Vice Chair of the American Society of Mechanical Engineer (ASME) V&V 60 Subcommittee for the Verification and Validation of Computational Modeling in Energy Systems. This subcommittee’s charter is to develop and establish best practice procedures for verification, validation, and uncertainty quantification in computational modeling and simulations as applied in non-nuclear energy systems. Computational modeling includes component level and system level simulation, big data analytics, and data assimilation. In this context, non-nuclear energy systems encompass engineering elements that include, but are not limited to, exploration, production, and processing of fossil-fuels and renewables, plant-scale processes, and transmission and distribution systems. Vinod will present a paper on this topic during the High Pressure High Temperature (HPHT) Technology Verification, Validation and Regulatory Requirements session at the Offshore Technology Conference (OTC) to be held on April 30 – May 3, 2018 in Houston, Texas.
