Abstract : The FORMAT System has been updated by the incorporation of additional basic capability and the refinement of existing capability. A simpler mode of updating case data and extended force method matrix generation capability has been incorporated in Phase I of the system. A refined 'Structure Cutter' module, capabilities for matrix partitioning and instruction looping, and an additional eigenvalue/eigenvector extraction module have been incorporated in Phase II. Finally the limitations which existed in the matrix plotting capability in Phase III have been eliminated. Programming documentation for the extended capability of Phase III of the FORMAT System is presented in this report. (Author)
