Abstract:

To relieve the user of NASTRAN-the National Aeronautics and Space Administrations general purpose, finite element, structural analysis computer program- from the necessity of becoming involved with internal aspects of NASTRAN when he adds a new element, a new element definition capability has been developed. This capability takes the form of a preprocessor which will generate, according to user specifications, the FORTRAN routines and tables required by NASTRAN for a new element. This manual contains details and instructions on the use of the preprocessor, and provides numerous examples.
