Abstract: STRESS-11 is an engineering application program used to
analyze forces, reactions, and displacements in
structural designs. Typical uses include the analysis of
building frames, bridge trusses, transmission towers,
and floor systems.
Use of STRESS-11 requires no computer programming
experience. Problem descriptions use engineering terms
that are familiar to a structural engineer.
To use the package, the engineer describes a structure
with a coordinate system that can be either 2- or 3-
dimensional. The engineer assigns a joint number and
joint coordinates to each joint in the structure, and a
member number and member incidence indentifies which two
joints the member connects.
The engineer then describes the physical properties of
these members, the member and joint loads to be placed
on the structure, and the support conditions for the
structure. With this information, the program is capable
of determining the joint displacements, joint reactions,
and forces for the structure.
Notes: Source code may require patching to run on versions
other than RSX-11M V3.2. Release notes shipped
automatically with each order.
