 Efficient Approach; Proceedings, 4th International Conference on Civil

 Engineering, Sharif University of Technology, Tehran, Iran, May 4-6, 1997

Recent Research Reports

 Research projects on The Elastic Behavior and Analysis of Non-prismatic

 Members which resulted in the development of three computer programs,

 namely, MAG (Member Analysis & Graphics), FAST (Flexibility And

 STiffness matrices) and FEE (Fixed-End Effects) for the computation of

 various quantities in non-prismatic members with any cross-sectional shapes

 and properties, and any types of variation (stepped, linear, parabolic, etc., and

 their combinations) in their dimensions (1993-95)


- Development of the most efficient and accurate computer program, IFA

 (Interactive Frame Analysis) for elastic analysis of rigid-jointed frame

 structures consisting of non-prismatic members with no limitations regarding

 types of loading, cross-sectional shapes or dimensional variations (1995-97)


- A research project on the linear and non-linear response of structures with

 non-uniform members; development of a computer program, VISTA (VIsual

 STructural Analysis) for comprehensive linear and nonlinear analysis of any

 frame, beam, truss or compound structure consisting of any combination of

 prismatic and/or non-prismatic members of any cross-sectional shapes, any

 types of dimensional variations along their lengths, any type of joint and

 member loading and support settlement conditions, any type of connections

 (including hinges and slides) between members; computation and plotting of

 axial & shear force and bending moment diagrams, local axial and flexural

 displacement diagrams for each member and global deformation of the whole

 structure to any desired scale, with all the quantities at all points (only a few

 cm apart!), maxima and minima and their locations; computation (and plotting)

of influence lines and various maximum effects of moving live loads (point and

 distributed) on bridges and gabled frame structures of constant and variable

 section, critical moving-load conditions, etc., all with the highest degree of

 accuracy and within a few seconds! The only software in the world with such

 capabilities, efficiency and accuracy (since December 2)
