One of the many computer oriented structural programs which utilizes the finite element technique is briefly discussed. Examples are presented to demonstrate the application of this program to actual product engineering structural problems. Correlation between predicted deflections and stresses and those obtained in the laboratory are presented.
Computer graphics provide a unique method of visually interrogating input data and displaying output data. Graphs, stress contours, and deflected structures obtained by this method are presented.
