The `FinEtoolsFlexStructures`

package is used to solve static and dynamic linear and nonlinear problems involving beams and linear static and dynamic analysis of shells.

The basic functionality is provided by the `FinEtools`

package.

Tutorials are provided in the form of Julia scripts and Markdown files in a dedicated folder: `index of tutorials`

.

To understand how the package works in depth, we would suggest inspecting the examples. The examples are organized by category: statics, dynamics, etc. There is usually an indication of what the correct answer should be (frequencies, deflections, buckling factors, ...). Many examples correspond to well-known benchmarks.
