About this book

The use of COSMOS for the analysis and solution of structural dynamics problems is introduced in this new edition. The COSMOS program was selected from among the various professional programs available because it has the capability of solving complex problems in structures, as well as in other engin­ eering fields such as Heat Transfer, Fluid Flow, and Electromagnetic Phenom­ ena. COSMOS includes routines for Structural Analysis, Static, or Dynamics with linear or nonlinear behavior (material nonlinearity or large displacements), and can be used most efficiently in the microcomputer. The larger version of COSMOS has the capacity for the analysis of structures modeled up to 64,000 nodes. This fourth edition uses an introductory version that has a capability limited to 50 nodes or 50 elements. This version is included in the supplement, STRUCTURAL DYNAMICS USING COSMOS 1. The sets of educational programs in Structural Dynamics and Earthquake Engineering that accompanied the third edition have now been extended and updated. These sets include programs to determine the response in the time or frequency domain using the FFf (Fast Fourier Transform) of structures modeled as a single oscillator. Also included is a program to determine the response of an inelastic system with elastoplastic behavior and a program for the development of seismic response spectral charts. A set of seven computer programs is included for modeling structures as two-dimensional and three­ dimensional frames and trusses.
