Nature of problem:
Generate a finite element mesh which approximates a given three- dimensional physical configuration. Two-dimensional physical configurations can also be represented as particular cases.
The configuration is divided into modules, and each module into elements. The modules are assembled as required and a mesh connectivity matrix is generated. The geometry of the structure is determined by specifying each module independently.
None, except those placed by the installation available to the user. As an estimation, a mesh with about 1,000 nodes and 1,000 elements can be generated with a computer having 32 Kwords of fast memory.
For a mesh with 1,000 nodes and 1,000 elements, the CPU running time is about 30 sec on the IBM-360, plus time required for output or plotting.
