Design procedures are developed that combine both the finite
element method and the transfer matrix method in design. These
procedures were drawn up as a result of the analysis of a large
continuous mining machine to be produced by Fairchild International.
Combining the methods allowed the analysis to be split into smaller
jobs. Two examples are given. The first example divides the machine
into a number of separate finite element analyses where the internal
loads on each component are determined by the transfer matrix method.
The second example analyzes the transition region between each of the
separate finite element analysis. Utillzing both methods in design
reduced computer usage costs.
