Abstract : The Finite Element Analysis Program (FEAP) was modified and integrated with the Naval Postgraduate School version of the Computer Analysis Language (CAL-NPS). This enables the solution of linear and non-linear, two and three dimensional heat conduction problems in an interactive mode. The usual types of boundary conditions, including radiation, may be specified. The heat conduction group includes prompts for user supplied data. Several existing CAL-NPS commands were improved and a 'HELP' facility was added. Commands were added for visual display of the finite element mesh at graphics terminals. The User Guide for this expanded version of CAL-NPS is provided. (Author)
