Abstract:

ASIAC is an on-site contractor to the Structures Division of the Wright Laboratorys Flight Dynamics Directorate. In analyzing and solving aerospace structures technical problems, ASIAC utilizes approximately ninety structural analysis computer codes. The computer programs range from small codes, designed for special purposes, to large general purpose structural mechanics codes. These computer programs can be useful tools to a designer or manufacturer to use to calculate internal mechanical and thermal stresses, predict structural strength, stiffness, weight, fatigue life, or to design for minimum weight and maximum life. This handbook discusses the capabilities of each program and provides guidance in selecting a code to meet an individual need.
