 Bias error
The total error – the difference between the exact and computed response - is composed of a random and a bias component. The bias component is a systematic deviation between the chosen model (approximation type) and the exact response of the structure (FEA analysis is usually considered to be the exact response). Also known as the modeling error. (See also random error).
 Binout
