COMPUTER PROGRAMS FOR PLOTTING FINITE ELEMENT PATTERNS OF TWO- AND THREE-DIMENSIONAL STRUCTURES

Two computer programs for plotting finite element patterns of two- and three-dimensional structures are described. These programs draw mesh patterns on the CalComp plotter and are useful for checking computer input data when using the finite element method of structural analysis. One program draws two-dimensional structures to scale, and the other draws perspective views of three-dimensional structures. Instructions for the use of the programs are included, with an appendix describing the analytical theory of the perspective geometry. (Author)
