Notable Releases in the Repository

CUFSM v1.0 was developed in 1997 as part of Prof. Schafer’s Ph.D. thesis.

CUFSM 2.5 was developed in 2001 and has a complete implementation of the semi-analytical finite strip method which was modestly refined in version 2.6 released in 2003 and was stable for several years. This version also included a significant amount of supporting and outreach materials which are available in the repository.

CUFSM 3.12 was released in 2007 and fully implemented the constrained finite strip method in the semi-analytical finite strip method. The release included major contributions from Sandor Adany. This version was stable for 4 years and still remains an excellent starting point for developers since it does not include generalized boundary conditions. This version also included a significant amount of supporting and outreach materials which are available in the repository.

CUFSM 4.05 was released in 2011 and implemented generalized boundary conditions for constrained and unconstrained finite strip elastic buckling. This major release was based primarily on the PhD work of Zhanjie Li and was a stable release for nearly a decade. Note tutorials for version 4.03 are provided in the repository.

CUFSM 5.00 was release in 2019 and in addition to providing compiled versions for more modern Windows and Mac OS also included a new interface, new modules related to beam-columns, and integration of the CUTWP and ABAQUSmaker tools. This version is still under debugging and further releases are expected.
