Abstract
Describes how to use the computer program MAVPAT, Version 1.0, developed at Defence Research Establishment Atlantic (DREA) to translate MAVART3D analysis results files to a form compatible with the finite element modelling program PATRAN. MAVART3D is a computer used for finite element analysis of piezoelectric sonar transducers. Once read by PATRAN, the translated MAVART3D analysis results can be displayed graphically, and superimposed on images of the finite element model. This communication shows how to configure the PATRAN software so that finite element model generation. MAVART3D analysis, data translation, and display of results can all be done within the PATRAN environment. The integrated operation of PATRAN, PATMAV, MAVART3D, and MAVPAT is illustrated with the worked example of the model analysis of the shell of a barrel stave projector. The example also shows how PATRAN Command Language can be used in the parametric design of a sonar transducer.
