AN UPDATED GUIDE TO THE USE OF GENERAL BENDING RESPONSE PROGRAM (GBRP)

A new version of General Bending Response Program, a computer program for ship vibration analysis, has been established on the Center's CDC computing system. This version differs from former versions primarily by permitting users to dynamically adjust computer core to fit the needs of any particular application. The report documents the use of the program to: (1) calculate the vibratory forces in a propeller shaft; (2) check the accuracy of normal mode shapes computed with the program's natural frequency option; and (3) obtain SC-4020 plots of computed results. Sample problems demonstrate each of these applications. (Author)
