Two key global seismic quantities are relevant to estimate the fundamental properties of a star: the frequency of maximum power (νmax) and the large frequency separation (Δν). The focus of this work is to test the νmax scaling relation in order to ascertain it’s level of accuracy. Here we report our results using artificial data and real Kepler data, based on a grid-modelling approach.
