PLanar and AXisymmetric FEM tools

PLAXL and PLAX are finite element Matlab codes for the analysis of axisymmetric and planar problems in solid mechanics. PLAXL is used for linear elastic deformations and PLAX for problems with geometrical and material nonlinearities.

FEMAXI is a Matlab finite element program for axisymmetric ring elements.
