Abstract : The program CSMT calculates shear, moment, and thrust for sections of a structure specified by the user, from stress results of a two-dimensional finite element (FE) analysis. The bulk of the input is for geometry definition (node and element data) and the stress results from a FE analysis. The node and element data are read free-field from one data file, and the stresses are read from another file. The remaining data are interactive commands to specify section information and to obtain plots of grid, sections, and results (shear, moment, and thrust). (Author)
