Abstract : NASTRAN (NASA STRuctural ANalysis) is a large, comprehensive, nonproprietary, general purpose finite element computer code for structural analysis which was developed under NASA sponsorship and became available to the public in late 1970. It can be obtained through Cosmic (Computer Software Management and Information Center), Athens, Georgia, and is widely used by NASA, other government agencies, and industry. Partial contents: Improved Accuracy in Solid Isoparametric Elements using Selectively Reduced Integration; A Four-Node Bilinear Isoparametric Element in Rockwell Nastran; Layered Composite Analysis Capability for NASTRAN; NPLOT: An Interactive Plotting Program for NASTRAN finite Element Models; Two Interactive Graphics Postprocessors for NASTRAN; An Unusual Application of NASTRAN Contour Plotting Capability; Isoparametric 3-D finite Element Mesh Generation Using Interactive Computer Graphics; A New NASTRAN Capability for Data Reduction.
