Many Domain-Specific Modelling Languages (DSML) can not formally define their semantics, which inevitably brings many problems, such as accurate description and automatic verification of model properties. In this paper, we propose a formal description method of the structural semantics of DSML for verifying consistency of models built based on DSML. Firstly, domain indicating structural semantics of DSML is formally defined based on algebra, and then, we briefly describe our framework for

Finally, many successful experiments on automatic translating and automatic verifying show feasibility of our formal approach
