Plate bending program (Help to spot the problem)

  1. Jan 9, 2012 #1
    hi all,

    I've created the small program which deals with the calculation of plate bending with quadrilateral finite element, program is written with Fortran. I've included all the source files that need to compile the program ,I've even added the executable file (along with input file Quad_1.dat) which produces the results.
    The problem is, although I'm %100 sure that process is as I've implemented, it doesn't produces the correct results when compared with other commercial packages. When solving with comercial packages, I 'm purely idealizing the problem to exactly match with my situation, so there is no chance that commercial package is taking into account something that I don't inlcude.

    Can anybody help me to spot where the problem is ?
