Abstract

A tailored graphical user interface GUI for finite elementanalysis, fully integrated into Microsoft Windows 3.1, has been developed.The current application is the simulation of flat sheet extrusion ofthermoplastics, but many of the features would be common to a wide range offinite element analyses. Microsofts CC ProfessionalDevelopment System 7.0, including the Software Development Kit 3.1SDK, has been used as the programming tool for the GUI. Theinterface is based on the Common User Access Advanced Interface Design Guide,which is part of the IBM Systems Application Architecture Library, and TheWindows Interface An Application Design Guide, which is part of theSDK. A memory handling technique is proposed to break the imposed 64 KB datasegmentation. Connected finite element calculation routines are written inFortran and compiled by the Salford FTN77x86 32bit compiler. Theprotected mode interface of the Fortran compiler allows direct access by theGUI, and allows the computation to run as a 32bit backgroundapplication, without memory limitations, in the multitasking environment.Finite element routines are supported by pre andpostprocessors comprising mesh generation, postprocessing forderived results, and graphical displays. A convenient contouring algorithmis proposed to generate contoured plots of nodal quantities in the form ofisolines or isofields.
