FORMAT Fortran Matrix Abstraction Technique is a digital computer program system consisting of three distinct programs written entirely in Fortran IV. The system provides for generation, manipulating, printing, and plotting of large order i.e., 2000 matrices commonly used in state-of-the-art structural analyses. Phase I of the system automatically generates matrices required in the thermomechanical analysis of structures by the Force or Displacement Methods including those necessary in joining, symmetricantisymmetric r reaction disconnect, vibration, and stability analyses. Modules for converting continuous-to-discrete loads, and analytic-to-discrete geometry and for maintenance of a master case data file are also provided to minimize input data requirements. Phase II provides an abstraction capability to effect basic matrix algebra via the standard matrix operations e.g., add, multiply, etc., and several control operations e.g., save and print matrices, etc.. The sequence of operations is user designated. Phase III provides for self-explanatory report form printing of matrix data resulting from Force or Displacement Method analyses, and a nominal graphical display capability for matrix and geometry data.
