Abstract : The SPAR computer software system is used for finite element structural and thermal analysis. This report contains user documentation of additional computer programs that have been developed for use in conjunction with SPAR. These programs plot digital data, simplify input for composite material section properties and compute lamina stresses and strains. Sample problems are presented including execution procedures, program input and tabulated and graphical output.
