3. DESCRIPTION OF PROBLEM OR FUNCTION

Two-dimensional program for time-dependent calculation of plane and axisymmetric composite con-  crete structures.  Assumed material behaviour:
-  linear viscoelasticity (creep) for the concrete
-  Hooke's Law for liner and reinforcement

The given structure may be represented by:
- triangular constant strain concrete elements, plane or axisym-    metric
-  plane or axisymmetric membrane steel elements (liner)
- one-dimensional steel elements, in plane or axisymmetric geometry     (prestress cables).

Transient pressure loads and temperature distributions may be taken  into account. Options for mesh generation, calculation of tempera- ture distributions, restart and the representation of results are included.

4. METHOD OF SOLUTION

The program uses the finite-element method.
The solution of the linear equation systems is performed either by utilization of the Gauss-Seidel iteration or by direct Gauss elimin- ation possibly with reiteration. The calculation can also be per- formed with double-precision.

5. RESTRICTIONS ON THE COMPLEXITY OF THE PROBLEM

Restriction to axi-  symmetric and plane problems. Only linear-viscoelastic creep be- haviour. No possibility of taking into account aging and shrinkage.

6. TYPICAL RUNNING TIME

For 400 nodes, 700 elements and one time in-  crement approximately 1 minute CPU time is required on the IBM 3033.
