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. NASA currently provides continuing maintenance of NASTRAN through COSMIC. Because of the widespread interest in NASTRAN, and finite element methods in general, the Fourteenth NASTRAN Users' Colloquium was organized and held at the Sea Point Hotel, San Diego, California on May 5-9, 1986. This Colloquium provides some comprehensive general papers on the application of finite element methods in engineering, comparisons with other approaches, unique applications, pre- and post-processing or auxiliary programs, and new methods of analysis with NASTRAN.
