FE-Software 1 Software Framework, OpenFresco
(new experimental control that talks to Adapter element)
Adapter Element Theory Software Framework, OpenFresco
Nodal force vector of AdapterElement:
Both, the super-element in the master FE-software and the adapter element in the slave FE-software need to be once implemented as user-defined elements using the software packages’ published programming interfaces
