Friday 1st May 1992

The introducing and the spreading of the computers have made possible, within structural engineering, the removal of the calculation difficulties inside the design phase of structures having a high degree of super-staticity. The accessibility and the easiness of use of the evoluted languages of programming allow also the creation and the personalisation of the relevant calculation codes. This report describes an example related to the lift technique (analysis of the internal action and of the deformation of the frame holding the car). The numerical algorisms used in the linear elastic area, and the possibility of their interfacing with other applicable programs are also mentioned.
