(1) Plotted results should be carefully examined for any signs of computational instability. These
typically are unreasonable variations in height or direction over short distances.
(2) The techniques provided in this chapter, if used carefully by an experienced engineer, can provide
very useful information in a wide range of cases. However, there are some cases where they simply will not
work. Anyone who applies these techniques should understand the limitations of the techniques, and be
versed in understanding when they have been used inappropriately. The user should be aware that the models
can provide realistic-looking answers that unfortunately are just wrong.
