Accompanied by user manual, Glyn Jones's program provides ways of analysing and modelling the effects of elastic foundations on diverse beams of differing cross-sections using the finite difference method of analysis.In a finite difference analysis of a loaded beam on an elastic foundation, shear forces and bending moments are calculated at each of the nodal points along ... In this way, most, if not all, of the peaks and troughs in the shear force and bending moment diagrams can be located. ... The following two examples serve to illustrate the recommended method of minimizing the truncation errors described above.
