Abstract : The work applies a new tool that can symbolically perform mathematical operations such as differentiation, substitution, expansion of terms, etc. The tool is an experimental symbolic manipulation system called FORMAC (FORmula MAnipulation Compiler) which utilizes the IBM 7090/94 computer. Applications of FORMAC computer programs to problems in structural mechanics are presented. (Author)
