USER'S GUIDE TO PREMSAP--AN INTERACTIVE DATA PREPROCESSOR FOR THE MICHIGAN STRUCTURAL ANALYSIS PROGRAM MSAP

To extend the usefulness of the Michigan Structural Analysis Program (MSAP), a data preprocessing program called PREMSAP has been developed. It is a format-free, interactive program to prepare the input data for MSAP, and can be run from any terminal on a time sharing computer system. PREMSAP provides the student/engineer an easy and efficient way of communicating the mathematical model of his simple structure to the computer and obtaining his results in a matter of minutes without the tedious work of learning and preparing formatted statements for MSAP and MSAPLOT, its graphic display partner. It can be used equally well with SOLID SAP or SAP IV. Use of PREMSAP in teaching structural subjects proved successful.
