Abstract
The quickest and most reliable method to generate a finite element grid is automatically with a computer, but it is not economical to do so unless the same genre of problem is to be analysed many times. If the grid is not generated automatically, a graph of the grid must be drawn, and later entered into the computer by some means. Typographical entry of data is time consuming and prone to error, so we have written a computer program "GRID", which uses a digitizing table to greatly speed up data entry compared with typographical entry. The report describes GRID, and gives an example of how GRID is used. GRID has been written specifically for the finite element program MAVART, but most of its subroutines are either of general applicability, or could be readily modified to meet the requirements of other finite element programs.
