If you mean benchmarking exercises, NAFEMS have their own validations
that they use for various FE codes. The benchmarks are more forn
validating types of element tho' : beams, shells, membranes and solids.
Failing that, you could try modelling some well defined theoretical
problems like beams and plates (Roarks is a good source for hand calcs

Upon installation Cosmos puts several pdf in the install directory. I
believe there are validation documents showing software correlation to real
world experiments. I've seen them for floworks specifically. I'm not too
sure about Cosmos FEA.
I'd bet any VAR could get these in you hands for your inspection.
For floworks, I found:
Just had a look in my COSMOSWorks install dir - there are some parts in
..\examples\verification but there are no documents I can find that
support these parts (analysis type etc)
There are COSMOS analyses set up for the parts tho' (B4.sldprt is a
classic Euler column buckling). Seems odd to provide verification
models, but no documentation to describe the problem, BC's, loads and
Off to the COSMOS website to see if that will shed any light........
