Thermal capabilities and graphical output of PAFECThe program for automatic finite element calculations (PAFEC) developed for the computation of heat transfer in structures is discussed. The passive and interactive graphics capabilities of the PAFEC system are presented and future developments are outlined. This finite element system is shown to have significant thermal capabilities in support of its general structures. The program offers the following types of analysis: interactive graphics; user defined program control steps; steady state, transient heat transfer; boundary element methods; linear static, stress and displacements; modes and frequencies calculations; direct dynamic time intergration; frequency response analysis; elastohydrodynamic lubrication; large deflection analysis, buckling; creep and plasticity analysis; and substructures analysis.
