Abstract
The report describes work done to produce a prototype computer program claled MacGRID, whose purpose is to generate finite element models for the analysis code MAVART. MacGRID, as its name suggests, is designed to run on an Apple Macintosh computer, and all of the standing menus found in a Macintosh application are supported, in addition to the special menus required to generate a finite element model. The application has two windows, one shows the model in graphical form, where the model can be created and manipulated with a mouse driven interface. The other is a text window, which allows the model data file to be viewed and edited using standard Macintosh editing techniques. Deficiencies in the present version of the code are noted, and suggestions for future development work are detailed.
