Examples are included in the manual which you can download. This provides a comprehensive set of inputs and outputs which can be used to test the program and to evaluate the software. To run a specific example, please contact us. A fee is charged for this service, which will be refunded if you subsequently purchase Elevate. We regret the need to charge a fee, which has been introduced to deter people using the service to check their design rather than to evaluate the software.
