Introduction

Fehmpytests is a new test suite for FEHM. Its goal is to enable FEHM developers to easily test new code and add new tests for existing or future functionality. To meet these goals, Fehmpytests uses the Python “unittest” module and a general test method that can be called for each new test case. Currently, there are twenty tests that Fehmpytests performs through a command line interface. Future plans are to integrate it into the FEHM build process and provide more modularity by improving the devloper interface.

Fehmpytests uses python 2.7 and expects the scipy module to be available. To verify your python version enter the following in a terminal:

python --version

If scipy is not available, contact your system administrator.
