3. DESCRIPTION OF PROGRAM OR FUNCTION

DYNA2D is an explicit, two-dimensional, axisymmetric and plane strain finite element program for analyzing the large deformation dynamic and hydrodynamic response of inelastic solids. A contact-impact algorithm permits gaps and sliding with friction along material interfaces. By a specialization of this algorithm, such interfaces can be rigidly tied to admit variable zoning with no need for transition regions. Spatial discretization is achieved by the use of 4-node solid elements, and the equations-of-motion are integrated by the central  difference method. The material models implemented are: elastic, orthotropic elastic, kinematic/isotropic elastic-plastic, thermo- elastic-plastic, soil and crushable foam, linear visco-elastic, rubber, isotropic elastic-plastic, and temperature-dependent elastic-plastic. The latter two models determine only the deviatoric stresses. Pressure is determined by one of 9 equations of state.

6. TYPICAL RUNNING TIME

DYNA2D requires 3 CPU minutes per million mesh cycles on a CDC7600, 18-30 seconds on a Cray1, and 30-50 minutes on a DEC VAX-11/780. These timings do not account for the inclusion of sliding interfaces. The sliding interface logic is not  vectorized.

7. UNUSUAL FEATURES OF THE PROGRAM

An interactive rezoning capability eliminates the need to terminate the calculation when the mesh becomes too distorted. Rather, the mesh can be rezoned and the calculation continued.

8. RELATED AND AUXILIARY PROGRAMS

The Cray1,CDC7600 version of DYNA2D makes use of the LLNL environment PLOTLIB (NESC 9692) graphics library; the PLOTLIB software is not included. The LLNL-developed DIGLIB graphics software used with the DEC VAX11 version in included with that version.
The MAZE preprocessor (NESC 9907) can be used to generate complete input files for DYNA2D, and the ORION (NESC 9906) and TAURUS (NESC 9908) postprocessors will produce graphics output from  DYNA2D binary plot file output.
Similar methods in three dimensions are available in DYNA3D (NESC 9909).
