Ecalibration Methodology Example
Enhanced Calibration for parameters is a useful
tool when the simulation is too time consuming
to perform calibration by numerical optimization.
It reinforces the human intelligence in the
expertise, knowledge and explanation of the role
and influence or cumulate influence of
parameters on simulation outputs.
It gives us instantly the Ecalibration forecast
parameters to use for your model.

Ecalibration allows to perform calibration of numerical models
'parameters against reference data (experiment,
simulation,…), in a very short timeframe.
From uncertainties intervals of parameters, Ecalibration
provides new forecast parameters 'values within a confident
range and the cumulated effect of parameters on the output.
Objective is to prevent of time consuming numerical simulation
by decreasing the error between the simulation and the
reference with the criteria defined by:
+∞ 𝜀2𝑑𝑡, with 𝜀 = 𝑦𝑒𝑥𝑝𝑒 − 𝑦𝑠𝑖𝑚𝑢
