Abstract:

CLYDE is a computer language for your differential equations. It provides numerical solutions to an important class of second order elliptic partial differential equations Laplace and Poisson which appear in almost every branch of applied mechanics governing the solutions to design problems in heat conduction, stress concentration, and potential fields electric, magnetic, electrostatic, gravitation, irrotational fluid flow, etc... There are three versions of CLYDE. This document describes the capabilities of the CDC 6000TEKTRONIX 4014 storage tube graphics version CLYDE-TEK and the batch version CLYDE-B and also serves as a preliminary users manual. An earlier version CLYDE-274, written for the CDC 65001700274 refresh graphics facility, is described in MISD Information Report 73-1, January 1973, and includes the extension of the solution to the fourth order stress analysis equation for flat plates. All CLYDE versions were written for CDC 6000 host computers under the SCOPE operating system with overlay structures. Two applications covered in detail in this document are steady state heat conduction and the membrane or soap film analogy of torsion of bars and shafts. Author
