How do we know the codes solving our simulation problems are accurate? It’s now more vital than ever that our analysis codes are verified accurately and independently. Who is responsible for code verification? What happens when we find an error? The answers to these questions are not only necessary, but they also have a significant impact on how trusted our industry can be.
NAFEMS has code verification at its very heart. Our initial working groups were set-up solely to produce benchmark tests for this very purpose, and we see it as our role to ensure that all software codes aspire to the same standard of accuracy.
