7. UNUSUAL FEATURES OF THE PROGRAM
TOODY2 features include -
(1) Intermediate tape storage is used. The values of properties computed are written on these tapes after they have been computed. After the computation has proceeded and these values are again required, they are read from these tapes. This allows values to be stored outside of the computer memory when they are not being used in the calculations.
(2) A sliding interface option is included. This option yields a more accurate description of the problem when the motion of two adjacent meshes is very different. Further, this allows more convenient zoning when more than one material is involved. Eight sliding interfaces can be used per problem and the interface friction can be specified as zero, infinite, or finite.
