We present a method for polyhedral abstract interpretation which derives fully bounded polyhedra for every step in the analysis. Contrary to classical polyhedral analysis, this method is sound for integer-valued variables stored as fixed-size binary strings; wrap-arounds are correctly modelled. Our work is based on earlier work by Axel Simon and Andy King but aims to significantly reduce the precision loss introduced in their method.
