3. DESCRIPTION OF PROGRAM OR FUNCTION

MATLOC is a nonlinear, transient, two-dimensional (planer and axisymmetric), thermal- stress, finite-element code designed to determine the deformation within a fractured rock mass. The mass is modeled as a nonlinear anisotropic elastic material which can exhibit stress-dependent bi-linear locking behavior.

4. METHOD OF SOLUTION

The numerical solution of the nonlinear equilibrium equations is performed using the incremental tangential  stiffness method in which the material stiffness matrices are continually updated.

5. RESTRICTIONS ON THE COMPLEXITY OF THE PROBLEM

Three-dimensional deformations and discontinuous displacements across open fractures and faults cannot be modeled. MATLOC can solve a problem with of 400 elements  with  up to 1000  nodes, of which 200  may be fixed.

6. TYPICAL RUNNING TIME:
NESC9851/01
NEA-DB ran the test cases included in this package on a CDC CYBER 830 computer. Execution times varied between 1 second for  sample cases 1 and 2, and 690 seconds for the Transient-BWIP case.

7. UNUSUAL FEATURES OF THE PROGRAM

MATLOC is primarily suited for use in room and canister scale studies of the excavation, operational, and short-term post-closure processes for sites within  geological media which do not exhibit significant viscoelastic (creep) phenomena or in situations where the viscoelastic behavior can be ignored.

8. RELATED AND AUXILIARY PROGRAMS

In order to perform a complete thermomechanical analysis, MATLOC must be used in conjunction with a SCEPTER thermal analysis code, such as DOT-BPMD (NESC Summary R9833) or SWENT. The heat transfer code is used to compute the steady-state or transient thermal field in the form of nodal temperatures to be read by MATLOC.
