I am writing a paper where I face the following situation.
1) I have made a claim (something holds true when something else holds true)
2) To make my claim more concrete I follow the claim with experimental analysis.
I want to say something like "To make the claim concrete", we show the experimental results ...
I thought of using "to support our claim, ...", but that seems too mild. I want something more imposing.
Is there a way to say this more elegantly?
