Abstract : SAP IV is a general purpose finite element analysis program for linear structural analysis. The program can analyze structures that are subject to either static or dynamic loads. The structures can be described in terms of truss, frame, plate, shell, or brick elements or combinations of elements. The static loads include concentrated loading applied to discrete points on the structural models; and loads, concentrated loading applied to discrete points on the structural models; and loads, concentrated or uniform, applied to individual elements in the model. The loads can be combined into load cases. The dynamic analysis features include modal analysis to obtain mode shapes and frequencies, response history analysis using either modal superposition or direct integration techniques, and response spectrum analysis.
