We describe the design and implementation of a workbench for computational geometry. We discuss issues arising from this implementation, including comparisons of different algorithms for constant factors, code size, and ease of implementation. The workbench is not just a library of computational geometry algorithms and data structures, but is designed as a(More)

Script-based I/O benchmarks record the I/O behavior of applications by using an instrumentation library to trace I/O events and their timing. A replay engine can then reproduce these events from the script in the absence of the original application. This type of benchmark reproduces real-world I/O workloads without the need to distribute, build, or run(More)
We are constructing a <italic>workbench</italic> for computational geometry. This is intended to provide a framework for the implementation, testing, demonstration and application of algorithms in computational geometry. The workbench is being written in Smalltalk/V using an Apple Macintosh II. The object-oriented model used in Smalltalk is well-suited to(More)
Previous work on structural software reliability modelling should be extended to account for data flow in software. A way forward is explained by contrasting two extremely simple examples of software structure. In addition to improving software reliability estimates, development of such an approach is important because it has the potential to provide(More)
This paper discusses the design and implementation of a series of system-wide simulation upgrades made to the Vehicle Systems and Control Laboratory in the Aerospace Engineering Department at Texas A&M University. The simulation system consists of a PCbased distributed simulation network comprised of a fixed-base full cockpit simulator and three additional(More)
