Validation Guide
Version: 2019 Tests passed on: 24 July 2019 Number of tests: 610
INTRODUCTION
Each year, before its official release, each version of GRAITEC software  Advance Design included  undergoes a series of validation tests. This complex validation process is carried out along with and in addition to manual testing and beta testing, in order to attain the "operational version" status. Its final outcome is the present guide, which contains a thorough description of the automatic tests, highlighting both the theoretical background and the results that our validation experts have obtained by using the current software release.
Such tests are generally made of a reference (independent of the specific software version tested), a transformation (a calculation or a dataprocessing scenario), a result (given by the specific software version tested) and a difference, usually measured in percentage as a drift from a specific set of reference values. Depending on the cases, the used reference can be a theoretical calculation performed manually, a sample taken from the technical literature, or the result of a previous version considered as accurate by experience.
Starting with version 2012, Graitec Advance has made significant steps ahead in terms of quality management by extending the scope and automating the testing process. While in previous versions the tests had always been centered on the calculation results, which were compared to a reference set, in the 2012 version, tests were extended to user interface behavior, import/export procedures, etc. The capacity to pass the tests automatically is another major improvement. The current tests have obviously been passed on the “operational version”, but they are actually passed on a daily basis during the development process as well. This ensures the improvement of the daily quality by solving potential issues immediately after they have been introduced in the code.
In the field of structural analysis and design, software users must always keep in mind that the results depend, to a great extent, on the modeling (especially when dealing with finite elements) and on the settings of the numerous assumptions and options available in the software. A software package cannot entirely replace engineers’ experience and analysis. Despite all the efforts we have made in terms of quality management, we cannot guaranty the correct behavior and the validity of the results issued by Advance Design in any given situation. In this validation guide, we are providing a vast set of concrete test cases showing the behavior of Advance Design in various areas and various conditions. The tests cover a wide field of expertise: modeling, climatic load generation according to Eurocode 1, combinations management, meshing, finite element calculation, reinforced concrete design according to Eurocode 2, steel member design according to Eurocode 3, steel connection design according to Eurocode 3, timber member design according to Eurocode 5, seismic analysis according to Eurocode 8, report generation, import / export procedures and user interface behavior. We hope that this guide will highly contribute to the knowledge and the confidence you keep placing in Advance Design.

M.V. Barton noted the sensitivity of the result relative to the mode and the angle. He acknowledged that the _{i} values were determined with a limited development of an insufficient order, which led to consider a reference value that is based on an experimental result, verified by an average of seven software that use the finite elements calculation method.
