3. DESCRIPTION OF PROGRAM OR FUNCTION

ORMGEN3D is a finite element mesh generator for computational fracture mechanics analysis. The program automatically generates a three-dimensional finite element model for six different crack geometries. These geometries include flat plates with straight or curved surface cracks and cylinders with part-through cracks on the outer or inner surface. Mathematical or user-defined crack shapes may be considered. The curved cracks may be semicircular, semielliptical, or user-defined. A cladding option is available that allows for either an embedded or penetrating crack in the clad material.

4. METHOD OF SOLUTION

In general, one eighth or one-quarter of the structure is modelled depending on the configuration or option selected. The program generates a core of special wedge or collapsed prism elements at the crack front to introduce the appropriate stress singularity at the crack tip. The remainder of the structure  is modelled with conventional 20-node isoparametric brick elements.  Element group I of the finite element model consists of an inner core of special crack tip elements surrounding the crack front enclosed by a single layer of conventional brick elements. Eight element divisions are used in a plane orthogonal to the crack front, while the number of element divisions along the arc length of the crack front is user-specified. The remaining conventional brick elements of the model constitute element group II.

8. RELATED AND AUXILIARY PROGRAMS

ORMGEN3D is part of a three- program system, ORMGEN-ADINA-ORVIRT, which addresses linear or nonlinear fracture in two -or three dimensional crack geometries. ORMGEN3D creates data flow of nodal point coordinates, element connectivities, displacement, and pressure boundary conditions for input to the ADINA structural analysis program. ORVIRT functions as  a postprocessor to ADINA and employs a virtual crack extension technique to compute energy release rates at specified positions along the crack front.
