Verification of polyhedral boundary representations (B-reps) of solid models through the use of an algorithm is addressed here. The validity conditions for B-rep models are presented in a format which leads directly to a set of verification algorithms. The validity verification algorithms are intended for design automation through execution after each solid modeling operation, after localized geometry modification, on imported object model databases, prior to storage of object models, or prior to execution of an application program on the solid model.
