Abstract:

This report contains documentation for the program ANALYZE. The program library consists of a bar, a membrane triangle, a quadrilateral, and a shear panel. The equations of finite element analysis, element formulations, program organization, and subroutine descriptions provide a comprehensive theoretical background for the program. The input and output instructions together with the sample problem and the results should provide adequate information for the use of this program. ANALYZE is an in-house program and can be used on INTERCOM for problems up to 150 to 200 degrees of freedom and a comparable number of elements. This program is extremely useful in training engineers in the use of finite element programs, in the development of finite element models of large aerospace structures, and in research in structural analysis and optimization.
