Abstract : The Computer program XMESH, is a finite element preprocessor, postprocessor, and a menu-driven input file builder. The program was developed at the U.S. Army Engineer Waterways Experiment Station as a productivity tool to be used with the finite element program, STUBBS. XMESH runs on any UNIX based system which has the software packages XWINDOWS and MOTIF. Although XMESH was written specifically for use with STUBBS, the program can be used with any finite element program as a preprocessor to develop meshes through the creation of nodes and elements and as a postprocessor to provide a visual display of the results of the analysis.
