This paper describes the challenge problem associated with the 2014 Sandia Verification and Validation (V&V) Challenge Workshop. The problem was developed to highlight core issues in V&V of engineering models. It is intended as an analog to projects currently underway at the Sandia National Laboratories—in other words, a realistic case study in applying V&V methods and integrating information from experimental data and simulations to support decisions. The problem statement includes the data, model, and directions for participants in the challenge. In addition, the workings of the provided code and the “truth model” used to create the data are revealed. The code, data, and truth model are available in this paper.
