1992 (English)In: Computers and Structures, ISSN 0045-7949, EISSN 1879-2243, Vol. 45, no 2, 387-395 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
We describe the current state of the art in computerized support of mathematical and numerical modelling for mechanical analysis. An overview of relevant high-level languages, computer algebra systems, and hybrid symbolic-numerical systems is also given. Several problems with current tools are identified, and a high-level programming environment is proposed as a solution. Such an environment should include object oriented model description, symbolic formula manipulation, generation of numeric code, automatic use of equation solvers and optimization techniques, in addition to graphical presentation of model and simulation data.
