A methodology has been developed for testing the numerical correctness of software used for continuous modelling. This report describes the methodology and applies it to some commonly used software packages.
The methodology is partly based on the methodology for testing discrete modelling
software developed as part of the first Software Support for Metrology programme, but has been further developed to address issues that are specific to continuous modelling software.
The applications of the methodology described in this report concern various aspects of some popular finite element packages. The methodology is applied to other, more
specialised, software in a companion report, “Testing Continuous Modelling Software:
Three Case Studies”.
