What is it?

Truss Solver is a graphical interface based computer program for solving simple 2-D truss deformation problems. This program is used in AEM 4501, Aerospace Structures I and AEM 4502, Computational Aerospace Structures.

Where can I use it?

Truss solver runs under Microsoft Windows 95/98 and NT and under Unix. An old version for the Macintosh of Truss Solver is available, but it is no longer supported. Truss solver is installed on the PC's and SGI's in the IT Computer Labs. See the Download page to obtain a copy for use at home.
