This section contains documentation on a series of verification problems and example applications that have been solved using 3DEC. The verification problems are tests in which the 3DEC solution is compared directly to an analytical (i.e., closed-form) solution. The example applications demonstrate various classes of problems to which 3DEC may be applied.
