Extending Mecho to solve statics problems

  title={Extending Mecho to solve statics problems},
  author={Lawrence Byrd and Alan Borning},
Mecho is a computer program for solving mechanics problems. To test the generality and extensibility of its representation and search control mechanisms, we extended Mecho to handle problems from a new domain, namely that of statics problems. This paper describes the representation and solution of some of these problems.
