3. DESCRIPTION OF PROGRAM OR FUNCTION

NIKE3D is a vectorized, fully implicit, three-dimensional, finite-element program for analyzing the finite-strain, static and dynamic response of inelastic solids,  shells, and beams. Capabilities currently available include sliding  interfaces, body force loads due to base acceleration, body force loads due to spinning (geometry dependent), concentrated nodal loads, pressure boundary conditions (geometry dependent), displacement boundary conditions, thermal stresses, plotfile generation, and problem restart.

4. METHOD OF SOLUTION

Spatial discretization is accomplished using eight-node solid elements that are integrated using a two-point Gauss quadrature rule, four-node shell elements that use a 2x2 Gauss integration in the surface and from 1 to 5 integration points through the thickness, and two-node thick beam elements using from 1 to 5 integration points in each local direction of the cross section at the center of the beam. Elastic, orthotropic elastic, elastic-plastic, thermo-elastic-plastic, soil and crushable foam, linear viscoelastic, thermo-orthotropic elastic, and thermo-elastic- creep material models are implemented. An incremental-iteractive numerical algorithm, based on the Green-Naghdi and Jaumann stress rate formulations, is implemented in NIKE3D. Five iterative schemes  are available including the BFGS quasi-Newton method, Broyden's quasi-Newton method, modified Newton-Raphson, full Newton, and full  Newton with line search.

8. RELATED AND AUXILIARY PROGRAMS

Similar methods in two dimensions are available in NIKE2D (NESC 9923). INGRID (NESC 9649), SLIC (NESC  968), and TACO3D (NESC 9838) can be used to prepare NIKE3D input, and the TAURUS (NESC 9908) postprocessor generates graphic output from NIKE3D results.
