I just watched a July episode of the DFI rumble that I missed before – the numerical modeler versus the skeptic. Approaching from the numerical modeling perspective was Augusto Lucarelli from Itasca (the makers of FLAC and FLAC3D among other programs). Providing a dose of skepticism about how numerical models are used in practice was Dr. Brian Anderson, of Auburn University. The referee for the bout was Tim Siegel, and I think he did a great job. I’d say he’s one of the best referees from this DFI series. Enjoy the bout!
