This volume contains critical reviews of structural mechanics computer programs in civil engineering, mechanical engineering, nuclear engineering, applied mechanics, marine engineering, and aerospace engineering. Forty leading authorities have prepared these substantive reviews that include a survey of available programs, summary of program capabilities, assessments by users, and details of availability. In addition to general-purpose programs and preprocessors, the review areas encompass programs for building analysis and design, bridge design, ship structures, structural members, transient response, stability, nonlinear continuum, shock wave propagation, plastic analysis cables, rotating shafts, thermal stresses, welding, structural optimization, aeroelasticity, thick shells, thin shells, composites, creep, seismic analysis, fracture mechanics, piping, pressure vessels, shock and vibration, viscoelasticity, and design of kinematic systems. The book provides a source for engineers to learn what computer programs are available and to assist in identifying the proper program for a particular job. It alerts users to the hazards that may be encountered in using these programs.
