Abstract

This paper describes the use of preset and programme parameters with the matrix interpretive scheme (which was considered in Part I) for the preparation of general purpose programmes for an electronic digital computer. The implications of partitioning the matrices when using the force method of analysis are considered in detail and the above techniques are applied to develop general purpose programmes for the calculations encountered when using this method of structural analysis. The general case, when all matrices are partitioned; the displacement method of structural analysis, and the use of magnetic tape storage, are considered in Part III.
