  • The Sandia National Laboratories (SNL) Engineering Analysis Code Access System (SEACAS) is a collection of structural and thermal codes and utilities used by analysts at SNL. The system includes pre- and post-processing codes, analysis codes, database translation codes, support libraries, UNIX[trademark] shell scripts, and an installation system. SEACAS is used at SNL on a daily basis as a production, research, and development system for the engineering analysts and code developers. Over the past year, approximately 180 days of Cray Y-MP[trademark] CPU time have been used at SNL by SEACAS codes. The job mix includes jobs using only a few secondsmore » of CPU time, up to jobs using two and one-half days of CPU time. SEACAS is running on several different systems at SNL including Cray Unicos, Hewlett Packard HP-UX[trademark], Digital Equipment Ultrix[trademark], and Sun SunOS[trademark]. This document is a short description of the codes the SEACAS system.« less

  • How can theoretical techniques of logical code analysis and specification be applied by software engineers to maintain and extend mature software systems? Existing techniques for logical code analysis and specification, based on weakest precondition calculations, have been developed by Dijkstra, Gries, and others, but practical use of these techniques has always been limited and is generally confined to program development. This paper discusses our successful experience applying these techniques to existing software. Our success depends upon a combination of training software engineers, learning how and when to apply the techniques, and the fact that we are working with existing codemore » rather than creating new systems. The objective is to learn how to apply these techniques to software so as to improve quality and productivity and to extend useful product life. We have also found that logical analysis is very beneficial in simplifying (or re-engineering) code, detecting latent defects and assumptions, and creating specifications from existing code. Our techniques have been applied to a wide variety of software, including real-time control systems, operating systems, and database programs.« less
  • The purpose of the Sandia National Laboratories Advanced Simulation and Computing (ASC) Software Quality Plan is to clearly identify the practices that are the basis for continually improving the quality of ASC software products. The plan defines the ASC program software quality practices and provides mappings of these practices to Sandia Corporate Requirements CPR 1.3.2 and 1.3.6 and to a Department of Energy document, ASCI Software Quality Engineering: Goals, Principles, and Guidelines. This document also identifies ASC management and software project teams responsibilities in implementing the software quality practices and in assessing progress towards achieving their software quality goals.
