Abstract
After the FAST (Fracture Analysis of Structures) system was developed, it was determined that it would be desirable to have a version of this program running on a Tektronix 4113B microcomputer at the DREA Dockyard Laboratory. The FAST system is currently implemented on a CDC Cyber 825 mainframe computer at the Technical University of Nova Scotia. The program running on the 4113B is the FAST1 part of the FAST system, which is essentially an extension of the APES program, with free-format of data, and interactive commands for execution. Some of the benefits of having this program on a microcomputer are that computer timesharing costs are eliminated, and security of the data can be easily maintained to DND specifications by having the machine on-site. The system should be easy to use, and must yield results that are compatible with those generated on the CDC Cyber.
