Abstract:

Computer Aided Structural Analysis (CASA) is an interactive computer graphics program designed to solve two dimensional structural analysis problems. CASA is currently used by the Department of Civil Engineering at the University of New Hampshire to aid in the instruction of the analysis of two dimensional structural systems. CASA divides the analysis procedure into three separate modules: pre-processing (of input data), analysis, and post-processing (of output data). These three modules are essential to the creation, solution, and interpretation of the analysis of determinate and indeterminate trusses and frames.
