Appendix E

User's Manual For the Simplified Finite Element Analysis Program (sfeap)

E.1 PREAMBLE

The simplified finite element analysis program (sfeap) can be used for static linear-elastic analysis of plane and space trusses, beam and plane frames, two- and three-dimensional problems and axi-symmetric solids. There are eight element subroutines, which are listed in Table E.1. They are numbered as ELMT1 to ELMT8 for referencing. The program was coded using the theory presented in the text. A copy of the program in PDF format is given at the end of this appendix and the executable and the FORTRAN versions of the program are included in the CD.

The first three subroutines employ one-dimensional element; ELMT1 and ELMT2 use truss elements while ...
