Subjectvalidation, simulation programs
AbstractDevelopers of dynamic building simulation programs generally use tests to validate software but there is not a systematic, consistent approach to testing. This paper examines the history and development of the tests used to validate the ESP-r dynamic building simulation software, and reviews the benefits of embedding validation tests in simulation models to allow routine checking of changes to the programming. It also presents the ideas behind tests developed for program users by the UK's Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers.
