FINGER: A Symbolic System for Automatic Generation of Numerical Programs in Finite Element Analysis

  title={FINGER: A Symbolic System for Automatic Generation of Numerical Programs in Finite Element Analysis},
  author={Paul S. Wang},
  journal={J. Symb. Comput.},
FINGER iS a Lisp-based system to derive formulas needed in finite element analysis, and to generate FORTRAN code from these formulas. The generated programs can be used with existing, FORTRAN-based finite element analysis packages. This approach aims to replace tedious hand computations that are time consuming and error prone. The design and implementation of FINGER are presented. Techniques for generating efficient code are dlseussed. These include automatic intermediate expression labelling… CONTINUE READING
