Appendix F

Graphical Interface For the Simplified Finite Element Analysis Program (sfeap)

F.1 PROGRAMS

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 Finite Element programs contained on the accompanying CD-ROM. The programs are listed in Table F.1, and are numbered as P1 to P8 for referencing. All the programs were coded using the theory presented in the text.

F.1.1 Preamble

The first three programs use one dimensional element; P1 and P2 use truss elements while P3 employs beam elements. The next two use two-dimensional elements in rectangular Cartesian co-ordinates; ...
