Document Type: Proceeding Paper
Part of: Computing in Civil Engineering
Abstract: A Plane Frame Analysis (PFA) system is presented. The system analyses structures with prismatic beam and truss elements, elastic supports, internal releases, support settlements, node rotations and node and member loads. Graphical display of structure's geometry, applied loads and results of the analysis are allowed in PFA. The system utilizes a relational database system for retrieving and storing its input and output data.
