This paper summarizes five solutions to the static frame validation challenge problem. The main goal is to highlight the different approaches present at each stage of the solution process. These include, among others, the description of the elastic properties of the frame's material and their calibration, the use of the validation and accreditation experiments for eventual model rejection and the final statement on the desired regulatory compliance, together with its reliability depending on the amount of available experimental data. It is shown that different methodologies lead to significantly different results. Finally, the conclusions highlight the main findings.
