Processor and postprocessor for a plane frame analysis program on the IBM PC
In this thesis, a PROCESSOR and a POSTPROCESSOR are developed for a plane frame analysis computer program on the IBM PC. The PROCESSOR reads the data prepared by a PREPROCESSOR and solves for the unknown joint displacement using the matrix displacement method. The POSTPROCESSOR uses the results of the PROCESSOR to obtain the required responses of the structure. A chapter on testing procedures is also provided.
