A package of programs which can be used to study the static and dynamic behaviour of a multi-supported shaft line is illustrated. The analysis is carried out by keeping account of the interaction with a supporting structure of same (foundation, casings, etc.). Together with the structure of the package, this paper is aimed at illustrating the mathematical model used for static and dynamic analysis.
