Abstract:

This report describes progress made in research during the final year of a five-year study of numerical dynamical analysis of structures funded by an AFOSR Grant. The original proposal was JPL Proposal 51-641 dated 6-29-76, and the final year renewal was proposed on 12-18-80. The proposed work effort in the final years work included the following Tasks 1 development of a higher order rectangular plane stressstrain finite element, 2 development of a solid hexahedron finite dynamic element, 3 further refinement of the Associated Generalized Eigenproblem Solution Routine.
