In order to validate the Xfinas code a very comprehensive series of test examples were solved by Prof Ki-Du Kim and his co-workers. A collection of the more representative benchmarks were chosen at CIMNE for testing the good behavior of every element implemented in the software.
The aim of the validation work carried out at CIMNE has been to asses the accuracy of the Xfinas program. This was done studying the whole validation process carried out by Prof Ki-Du Kim’s team in detail. For this purpose we have chosen at CIMNE randomly the different benchmarks to be reproduced between those of the validation manual (VM from now on). In every example we checked the agreement of the results with the Xfinas validation data.
