Abstract
A software package for dynamic analysis of soil, solid, fluid and structural assemblies is outlined. Particular emphasis has been placed on the efficient simulation of complex interacting complex systems such as soil-structure or soil-fluid-structure interactions. The latest developments in FEM methodology and programming techniques have been used in this code. The complete package with its fully interactive graphic pre- and post-processors has been designed for operation in PC-type computers, although its modular structure allows for independent use of the FEM module on a wide range of mainframe platforms.
