Hi! I am the director of the CU-Ideas research group. Our group is dedicated to the development, application and dissemination of model validation and uncertainty quantification (MVUQ) methods. Our main emphasis is in structural dynamics applications and structural systems coupled with other domains. This web page includes information about our team, ongoing and past projects, publications and courses taught by me.
Funding for our research is provided by several federal agencies including National Science Foundation, Department of Energy, Department of the Interior, Department of Transportation, Los Alamos National Laboratory as well as industry organizations and partners, such as National Masonry Concrete Association and Vulcraft Inc.
Our focus directly relates to the goals of the Society of Experimental Mechanics (SEM) MVUQ technical division, which is currently chaired by me. I encourage you take the time to visit the MVUQ technical division website to learn more about the upcoming events. The technical division has a Linkedin Group titled "Model Validation and Uncertainty Quantification Technical Division of IMAC". I invite everyone interested in MVUQ and want to be involved in the technical division to join our Linkedin Group. You can contact me via email@example.com.
Dr. Atamturktur is looking forward to hiring three doctoral students and two post-doctoral fellows to be involved in a variety of externally funded projects on uncertainty quantification in scientific computing.
Dr. Atamturktur is the Principal Investigator of a new GAANN project, which will fund 8 doctoral students for the duration of their study (2015-2019) on topics related to Model Validation and Uncertainty Quantification. Interested U.S. citizen students are encouraged to contact Dr. Atamturktur. Click here for more information.
