SESAM-69. A GENERAL PURPOSE FINITE ELEMENT METHOD PROGRAM

The multilevel superelement method in combination with extensive data generators materialized in the program system SESAM-69 introduce a new dimension to the concept of the Finite Element Method (FEM). The paper describes the superelement method and the program system SESAM-69 in brief terms. However, the major part contains some of the program analytics in connection with this method. The multilevel superelement method is an extension of the better known substructure technique, or reduction procedure. The method applies to both statics and dynamics.
