Having commercial codes reached a high level of user friendliness, an essential issue is now quality assurance. The final goal of a quality assurance process in fea is to reduce the error, implicit in any numerical procedure, below a pre-determined value in order to validate the accuracy of the results. The present work is focused on the a-posteriori error analysis. As a matter of fact a-priori measures alone are n
