Abstract:

A computer code for the static and dynamic analysis of flat plate grillages is described. The code was a finite element displacement method incorporating a geometric stiffness matrix to calculate the response to static, cyclic or transient loads. Natural frequencies and buckling loads can also be calculated. A full input description is given including a simplified data generation facility for regular grillages. Input and output for some representative sample problems are included. Author
