Abstract:

This document describes the usage and input of a program that performs a stress analysis on an axisymmetric body with isotropic materials. The body may have asymmetric loads, in which case several passes through the program are required to obtain the complete solution. The accumulation routine will accumulate all the harmonics of the Fourier expansion. The program is a compressible formulation that is, Poissons ratio must be less than .5, but it may be as close to it as desired. An extensive input module has been included in the program to make it as user oriented as possible. This includes routines that will automatically generate bearing geometry based on basic input parameters. The basic program is written in FORTRAN IV with some support routines written in IBM 370 Assembler Language.
