The KUST reference program has been developed by the SCAD Soft company and makes part of the SCAD Office system. It is designed for solving a certain class of mechanics problems for which there exist analytical or sufficiently accurate approximate solutions that can be found in the relevant literature. Though the majority of these problems can be also solved by SCAD, using KUST makes it possible to obtain a solution without creating design models. Moreover, some of the obtained results can be used to specify initial data when building a finite-element model (e.g., effective length factors, estimation of natural frequencies etc.).
All problems that can be solved by this program can be classified into the following categories:
- stability of equilibrium;
- natural vibration frequencies;
- other oscillation problems;
- static analysis;
- auxiliary calculations.
KUST functions under Windows operating environment. All the windows, dialog boxes and controls are fully consistent with this environment.
