PREFEM and SERFEM — Special Purpose Programs for Elastic Plate Bending and In-Plane Analysis of Plates
Two special purpose programa will be presented here, one for plate bending analysis and the other for in-plane analysis of plates. Main characteristics for both programs are minimization of the time required for preparation of input data and for interpretation of the calculated results.
