Abstract:

A computing technique was developed to determine the feasibility of combining the several batch computer programs for the analysis of composite joints into one interactive computer program utilizing graphics display. This approach proved successful and produced a design tool for the analysis of bolted or bonded composite joints. The program utilizes the software package provided by TEKTRONIX for the graphics display. The user works at the remote on-line graphics terminal in conjunction with the main computing facilities which contain the program. The final report discusses the summary, conclusion, and recommendations of the work performed. The Users Manual and Programming Manual discusses the input, output, and function of the program.
