dc.description.abstractThe objectives of the project described in this thesis were to: 1) provide the documentation that is needed for a Naval Postgraduate School student to use the general purpose finite element computer program called SAP IV, and 2) to make available, and prepare the users manual for, a pre-and postprocessor program called SUBROUTINE PSAP. This subroutine, which was developed at the NASA Langley Research Center, has been modified to specifically plot the finite element model geometry for SAP IV models and to postprocess displacement data for those models on the NPS Calcomp Model 765 Plotter. The input and output for SAP IV and SUBROUTINE PSAP are discussed in detail. The codes have been used successfully in AE 4102, Flight Vehicle Structural Analysis II.
