The checkData element

The checkData element contains an input/output vector pair (and optionally a dump of internal values) for the encoded model to assist in verification and debugging of the implementation.

    checkData : 
        staticShot* : name [refID]
            checkInputs :
                signal* :
                    signalName
                    [signalUnits]
                    signalValue
            [ internalValues :
                signal* :
                    signalID
                    signalValue ]
            checkOutputs :
                signal* :
                    signalName
                    [signalUnits]
                    signalValue
                    tol
	

checkData sub-elements:

staticShot

One or more check case data sets

checkInputs

A vector of input variables & values

internalValues

A vector of internal signal values [optional]

checkOutputs

A vector of output variables, including values & required matching tolerances

1

This first check case refers to a note given in the file header; this is useful to document the source of the check case values.

2

The checkInputs element defines the input variable values, by variable name, as well as units (so they can be verified).

3

Multiple variable values are given, constituting the input "vector."

4

The checkOutputs element defines output variable values corresponding to the input vector.

5

Note the included tolerance value, within which the output values must match the checkcase data values.

6

Multiple check cases may be specified; this one differs from the previous checkcase due to an increase in the pitching rate input.
