Document Type: Proceeding Paper
Part of: Damage Mechanics and Continuum Modeling
Abstract: This paper illustrates how interactive computer graphics can provide a useful tool in setting up analytical models of structural latticeworks comprised of large numbers of degrees of freedom for automated input to both standard discrete analysis procedures and equivalent continuum modeling packages. On output, interactive computer graphic techniques facilitate interpretation of the results.
