Abstract:

A computer code STACUSS 1 for the small-deflection, linear-elastic, static, finite-element analysis of thin shells of revolution having structural andor material asymmetries has been developed. The code utilizes recently-developed stiffness analyses for doubly-curved quadrilateral and conical triangular shell elements, and straight and curved stiffener elements. Isotropic andor skew planar orthotropic temperature-independent material properties are accommodated. Mechanical and thermal loadings are taken into account. Also included in the code are 1 automatic mesh generation and plotting and 2 both in-core and out-of-core solution capabilities. Author
