This paper presents a timed CTL model checker for Real- Time Maude and its semantic foundations. In particular, we give a timed CTL model checking procedure for that is sound and complete for closedbound formulas under a continuous semantics for a fairly large class of systems. An important benefit of our model checker is that it also automatically provides a timed CTL model checker for subsets of modeling languages, like Ptolemy II and (Synchronous) AADL, which have Real- Time Maude model checking integrated into their tool environments.
