WEBINAR: The Myth of Accuracy

Date: 22 September, 1-2pm
Presenter: Damian Harty


There exists a commonly held, if rarely spoken, belief that the usefulness of any predictive model is directly related to its accuracy as measured against the real world.

In a deliberately contentious manner, this belief is tested and found wanting with several examples of real world processes. There is a time when sufficient accuracy is optimum. An approach is described which encourages discernment of optimum accuracy by all involved in the process.


Although this webinar has been arranged for the EIS Young Engineers Forum we invite all to attend free of charge. To register your attendance please email

Damian Harty

Damian has a rich history of modelling and discovery through modelling, gained through years of working with a wealth of renowned companies including Ford, Prodrive, Tesla and most recently Byton North America. A published author in multibody modelling, he uses both commercial and classical methods. Areas of expertise include motorcycle stability, handling and durability modelling tool generation along with limit/post-limit control modelling and World Rally Car damper & steering research. Since the start of his early career Damian has strived to be deeply technical and his research allows him to draw conclusions which sometimes counter “prevailing wisdom”. His passion for true all-circumstance autonomous control is infectious and his presentations often leave the audience with a desire to review and question established methodology.

CONFERENCE: Fatigue 2021

Date: 29-31 March 2021, Downing College, Cambridge


The conference will take place at Downing College, University of Cambridge. Cambridge is one of the most important and picturesque cities in East Anglia. It is the county town of Cambridgeshire and the seat of one of the oldest universities in the British Isles. Downing College was founded in 1800 through a bequest made by Sir George Downing. The College’s beautiful neo-classical buildings are set in spacious and peaceful gardens in the centre of Cambridge.

Scientific Topics

Topics covered during the conference will include: basic science of fatigue, advanced manufacturing, high performance materials, multiaxiality, thermomechanical response, corrosive environments, notches, welds and joints, designing against failure and tools for structural integrity assessment. Presentations will include innovative modelling and simulation, new experimental techniques and novel assessment methods.

Keynote Speakers

Professor Youshi Hong - Chinese Academy of Sciences Mukesh Patel - Safran Professor Robert Ritchie - University of California Professor Roderick Smith - Imperial College, London

EXHIBITION: Instrumentation, Analysis and Testing Exhibition 2021

Date: April 2021, Silverstone Race Circuit


The Instrumentation, Analysis and Testing Exhibition has become a significant event in the engineering year and with visitors travelling from across the UK it is seen by many as the go-to event for testing and analysis technologies. Returning to the Silverstone Wing at Silverstone Race Circuit in April 2021, the exhibition is an opportunity to visit the 65 exhibitors to see the latest equipment and technologies as well as being a great meeting point for the exchange of ideas and contacts. The event is aimed at companies and individuals with an interest in the field of engineering involving measurement, analysis, testing and prediction. It covers many sectors including Automotive, Aerospace, Motorsport, Rail, Off-Highway, Mechanical Handling, Civil Engineering, Industrial and Power Generation.

Mini Seminars

There will be a number of mini seminars taking place throughout the day on a given theme. This will be announced in the coming months.


Attendance is free and visitors receive complimentary refreshments along with free parking.
