Abstract : The Planform Input Generator (PING) presented in this report is pre-processor for NASTRAN analysis of lifting surfaces. Using PING, finite element models can be automatically generated and NASTRAN bulk data cards punched, thus enabling a complicated structure to be accurately and rapidly analyzed. General theoretical development user's manual, program listing and sample problems are included in the report. (Author)
