COMPUTER AIDED DESIGN--VOLUME I COMET-X-DEMONSTRATIVE EXAMPLES

The report contains an overview of COMET-X, a degree adaptive finite element program. Specific applications of COMET-X to railroad oriented and stress concentration problems are sought and described. The accuracy of results and efficiency of computation is compared with GIFTS-4, a grid adaptive finite element program. It is observed that in general COMET-X requires less CPU time than GIFTS-4. Little or no effort has been devoted to presenting the advantages of graphic pre- and post-processing of GIFTS Program.
