Code Verification

Code Verification

One of the earliest goals of NAFEMS was to develop a set of 'Benchmarks' against which analysis codes could be tested. Today many major vendors routinely use these benchmarks to demonstrate the accuracy of their code. This page lists the members of the NAFEMS Vendor Network who include NAFEMS 'Benchmarks' as part of their standard quality assurance process.

The code verification has been performed by the code vendors. Users of these software codes are encouraged to independently verify the results of these benchmarks are as quoted in the various verification manuals.
