Development of user-friendly and flexible scientific programs is a key to their usage, extension and maintenance. This paper presents an OOP (Object-Oriented Programming) approach for design of finite element analysis programs. General organization of the developed software system, called FER/SubDomain, is given which includes the solver and the pre/post processors with a friendly GUI (Graphical User Interfaces). A case study with graphical representations illustrates some functionalities of the program.
