ACCESS 1: APPROXIMATION CONCEPTS CODE FOR EFFICIENT STRUCTURAL SYNTHESIS PROGRAM DOCUMENTATION AND USER'S GUIDE

The program documentation and user's guide for the ACCESS-1 computer program is presented. ACCESS-1 is a research oriented program which implements a collection of approximation concepts to achieve excellent efficiency in structural synthesis. The finite element method is used for structural analysis and general mathematical programming algorithms are applied in the design optimization procedure. Implementation of the computer program, preparation of input data and basic program structure are described, and three illustrative examples are given. (Author)
