Using the object oriented programming technique, a library of object classes has been developed and implemented using C+PLU2 for easy generation of finite element analysis programs. A general overview of the library is first presented followed by a detailed description of the main object classes. Two example programs are included at the end to demonstrate some of the advantages offered by the object oriented programming technique in developing finite element analysis programs.
