3. DESCRIPTION OF PROBLEM OR FUNCTION

The  HEMP  code   solves  the
conservation equations of two-dimensional elastic-plastic flow, in
plane x-y coordinates  or in  cylindrical symmetry  around the  x-
axis.   Provisions  for  calculation  of  fixed  boundaries,  free
surfaces, pistons, and  boundary slide planes have  been included,
along with other special conditions.

4. METHOD OF SOLUTION

The  solution  is  by the  method  of  finite
differences and  uses the  Lagrangian formulation.   The materials
within a physical  system are divided into  quadrilaterals bounded
by J  and K  grid lines.  A  decoupling of  grid lines  is allowed
along K-lines, and voids may open and close between K-lines.

5. RESTRICTIONS ON THE COMPLEXITY OF THE PROBLEM

The maximum number
of J's  in any  K-line is 101.   A problem of  up to  about 10,000
zones may be run.
top ]
6. TYPICAL RUNNING TIME

Basic  HEMP calculation  speed  is about  5
points (or zones)  per millisecond.  The number  of problem cycles
necessary depends on  the problem termination  time and  the time-
step size.   Typical problems  run from a  few minutes  to several
hours with time a function of  zone size, material composition and
activity in the zones.

7. UNUSUAL FEATURES OF THE PROGRAM

The input  system, described  in
the HEMP  User's Manual is  designed so  that the least  amount of
data to  describe a particular  physical system need  be supplied.
However,  provision  is  made for  describing  initial  conditions
(zonal or nodal) in great detail, if required.

11. MACHINE REQUIREMENTS

The  HEMP main  code fills  the small  core
memory (SCM) with  the code, working storage,  library, and system
routines.  The large  core memory (LCM) utilized is  a function of
problem size, the amount required is 527,270 (octal) words.

14. OTHER PROGRAMMING OR OPERATING INFORMATION OR RESTRICTIONS

Memory must be  precleared to zero.  The program treats  LCM as an
input-output storage device.  Data is accessed  to and from LCM in
K-line groups.  The dimensions of variables in LCM numbered COMMON
blocks must be adjusted for each problem.
