A Defense of Computational Physics: Popper’s Non-Verifiability vs.Computational Validation
Patrick J. Roache’s primary area of
expertise is in the numerical solution of partial differential equations, particularly those of fluid dynamics, heat
transfer, and electrodynamics, with special interest in verification and validation. He is the author of the original (1972) CFD book Computational Fluid Dynamics (translated into Japanese, Russian, and Chinese), the monograph Elliptic Marching Methods and Domain Decomposition (1995), the widely referenced Verification and Validation in Computational Science and Engineering (1995), the successor to the original CFD book Fundamentals of Computational Fluid Dynamics (1995), the successor to the original V&V book Fundamentals of Verification and Validation (2009), and the booklet A Defense of Computational Physics (2012). Roache served as associate editor for Numerical Methods for the ASME Journal of Fluids Engineering from 1985 to 1988, and coauthored that journal’s innovative Policy Statement on the Control
of Numerical Accuracy. He also chaired the AIAA Fluid Dynamics Subcommittee on Publication Standards for Computational Fluid Dynamics which produced the original AIAA Policy Statements on Numerical Accuracy. He co-edited an ASME symposium proceedings on Quantification of Uncertainty in CFD, wrote a chapter on that subject for Annual Reviews of Fluid Mechanics, and co-authored a chapter on V&V in the Handbook of Numerical Heat Transfer, 2nd Edition. He has taught eleven short courses (six for AIAA) on verification and validation. Committee work and publications on verification and validation include ASCE Free Surface Flow Model Verifications, and ASME committees on V&V in Computational Solid Mechanics (V&V 10), V&V in Fluid Dynamics and Heat Transfer (V&V 20), and the newly formed V&V in Computational Nuclear System
Thermal Fluids Behavior (V&V 30). Both V&V 10 and V&V 20 have
resulted in ASME publications accepted as ANSI standards.
He has served on the advisory editorial board of six international
journals and on several review boards and committees. He has
received career awards from the University of Cincinnati and the
University of Notre Dame, and the ASME Knapp Award. With
Prof. S. Steinberg, he pioneered the use of computer artificial
intelligence (symbolic manipulation) in CFD and variational grid
generation. He has served as adjunct faculty and visiting
professor in engineering and mathematics at six universities.
Roache is a Fellow of the ASME and Associate Fellow of AIAA.
He received his PhD (1967) in aerospace engineering from the
University of Notre Dame. For full resume, visit www.hermosapub.
