The reference manual program KUST is developed by the SCAD Soft company and included in the SCAD Office software package. It solves particular classes of mechanical problems for which there exist analytical or sufficiently accurate approximate solutions published in literature on the subject. Though the majority of these problems can be also solved by the SCAD software, involving KUST will enable one to get a solution without building any design finite-element models. Also, some of results obtained by KUST can be used to specify source data when building a finite-element model (such data as coefficients of effective length, estimates of natural frequencies etc.).
All problems which the program is capable of solving can be classified into the following categories:
- stability of equilibrium;
- frequencies of natural oscillations;
- other oscillation problems;
- static calculations;
- auxiliary calculations.
KUST functions under Windows Vista/7/8/10 operating environment. User dialogue techniques and controls are organized in complete conformance to this environment.
