Abstract : The Structural Analysis Graphics Package is designed to be used in conjunction with existing and/or future Structural Programs. Its primary objective is to reduce the masses of output data from these programs into concise graphical representations. Specifically, SAGPAC will plot (1) Basic and Deflected Structures, (2) Contour Lines of selected stresses or strains to include zooming capabilities on critical areas of the structure, and (3) Stresses or Strains versus radial or axial distances. The SAGPAC, written entirely in FORTRAN IV and in conjunction with the S. C. 4060 plotter, may be readily adapted to other hardware. (Author)
