Abstract : CSDOOR called X0057 in the Conversationally Oriented Real-Time Programming System (CORPS) library, is useful to perform roped design of metal plates used to form the sides and roofs of blast cells and of metal used as doors-regular and built-up. The program may be used for any structure materials for which the material properties are known but steel is the most commonly used. The program may be used, with limitations, to optimize the design by funding the least-cost structures that satisfies all the design constraints.
