Object-Oriented Programming is a new trend in software design and development
which arises from the need of reducing the costs of creating and maintaining complex
computer software. Much of the power of conventional programming comes from the
abstract representation of data structures. Object-oriented programming takes
a step further and represents everything as objects which may contain not only
data, but also the functions which operate on that data. Thus, the basic philosophy
of the object-oriented approach is to build parts of a large program as abstract
This new approach is being applied to the development of CASTBM2000, a FEM package
for thermo-mechanical analysis. In this article, we present first, the theoretical
basis of this ongoing effort. And second, we demonstrate the current capabilities
of CASTEM2000 with a sample of selected examples.
