Units and Dimensions:
SimCon is carrying out research on automatic identification and checking of the physical
units and dimensions of the variables in a Fortran program. The tools form part of FPT, and
preliminary releases have been tested by CSC at Airbus Filton. An important issue is that the user
does not need to specify the units and dimensions of the variables in the program. FPT automatically determines the
relationships between the units of different variables, and attempts to find inconsistencies or to show that none exist.
