Conference paper


This work discusses the methods employed by the author in the development of the FEM software GAELI [1]. This software includes pre and post processing facilities (including graphical representation) and linear (static and dynamic) analyses. It was developed to run in microcomputers with a minimum of 640 kbytes and can handle up to 10000 degrees of freedom.
