3. DESCRIPTION OF PROGRAM OR FUNCTION

The finite elements code FINEDAN performs dynamic analysis of continua in two-dimensional Cartesian and axisymmetric geometry. Main areas of application are fast dynamic problems, involving shock or pressure wave propagation, body contact or impact problems (including penetration  problems) and sliding problems. Continua can be both fluids and solid materials. The user has the possibility to implement his own construction material models. However, basic material models related to nuclear power plants are already included in the program, such as plastic material, elastic-plastic material with isotropic and/or kinematic hardening, the CAP model for concrete, a sandwich model for reinforced concrete, the ideal gas equation, and the Murnaghan equation for liquids.

4. METHOD OF SOLUTION

For spatial discretisation, 4-node iso- parametric one-point integration elements based on the principle of  virtual work, or 4 node elements with high coarse-mesh accuracy based on multifield Hu-Washitu variational principle, were used. The latter option can be used, however, only for linear materials. The instabilities due to the hourglass modes are effectively controlled by elastic or viscous models. The shock or pressure waves are smeared out through linear or quadratic pseudoviscosities.
The equations of motion are integrated by the central difference method, which is only conditionally stable - the code uses an efficient automatic method to evaluate stable time steps for the solution. For the mass matrix, the lumped approach is used and therefore the direct solution of the equation of motion is possible  without any matrix inversion.
The code contains several methods simulating possible mechanical interactions between the elements: tied nodes; the penalty method for contact algorithm; sliding lines; and penetration algorithm with erosion limits.
The PC version enables to obtain also quasi-static solutions through the dynamic relaxation method or through the material damping method (both methods can use the mass scaling option). This  version also contains efficient control of the solution through time histories of various energies and an efficient graphical post- processor.

5. RESTRICTIONS ON THE COMPLEXITY OF THE PROBLEM

This version of the  code can only solve dynamic problems involving up to:
   1000 4-node elements
   2000 nodes
    100 triangular contact elements
     50 line contact elements
    100 segments with the external given pressure
    500 tied nodes
     10 materials
     50 given functions
      5 sliding lines with 100 slave nodes.
The code has, for each element, 15 variables available so that an implementation of new material models is quite easy.
The code has no direct compatibility with any preprocessor or postprocessor.
   Dynamic allocation is provided.

6. TYPICAL RUNNING TIME

The running time depends on the number of elements used and on the number of time steps.
IAEA1181/01
NEA-DB executed the test case included in the package (file INPUT.DAT) in 3 seconds on a VAX-6000  and in 4 seconds on a
66-MHz PC/80486.

7. UNUSUAL FEATURES OF THE PROGRAM

The code is convenient for the solution of impact problems. Attention was given to the modeling of  the local response of reinforced concrete structures to various impact loading. It can be applied to problems involving both fluids  and solids. It contains a penetration algorithm with erosion limits.
