DYNA3D, 3D Finite Elements for Dynamic Response of Inelastic Solids
3. DESCRIPTION OF PROGRAM OR FUNCTION
DYNA3D is an explicit, three dimensional, finite element program for analyzing the large deformation dynamic response of inelastic solids and structures. DYNA3D contain 30 material models and 10 equations of state (EOS) to cover a wide range of material behavior. The material models implemented are: elastic, orthotropic elastic, kinematic/isotropic plasticity, thermoelastoplastic, soil and crushable foam, linear viscoelastic, BlatzKo rubber, high explosive burn, hydrodynamic without deviatoric stresses, elastoplastic hydrodynamic, temperature dependent elastoplastic, isotropic elastoplastic, isotropic elastoplastic with failure, soil and crushable foam with failure, Johnson/Cook plasticity model, pseudo TENSOR geological model, elastoplastic with fracture, power law isotropic plasticity, strain rate dependent plasticity, rigid, thermal orthotropic, composite damage model, thermal orthotropic with 12 curves, piecewise linear isotropic plasticity, and inviscid two invariant geologic cap, orthotropic crushable model, MoonsyRivlin rubber, resultant plasticity, closed form update shell plasticity, and FrazerNash rubber model. The IBM 3090 version does not contain the last two models mentioned.
The hydrodynamic material models determine only the deviatoric stresses. Pressure is determined by one of ten equations of state including linear polynomial, JWL high explosive, Sack "Tuesday" high explosive, Gruneisen, ratio of polynomials, linear polynomial with energy deposition, ignition and growth of reaction in HE, tabulated� � compaction, tabulated, and TENSOR pore collapse. DYNA3D generates three binary output databases. One contains information for complete states at infrequent intervals; 50 to 100 states is typical. The second contains information for a subset of nodes and elements at frequent intervals; 1,000 to 10,000 states is typical. The last contains interfaces data for contact surfaces.

4. METHOD OF SOLUTION
A contactimpact algorithm permits gaps and sliding along material interfaces with friction. All versions except for the IBM3090 include an interface type defining oneway treatment of sliding with voids and friction. 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 implementation of HughesLiu rectangular beams and shells, BelytschkoTsay shells and beams, triangular shell elements based on work by Belytschko and colleagues, and 8node solidshell elements. All element classes can be included as parts of a rigid body. Threedimensional plane stress constitutive subroutines update the stress tensor for the shell elements such that the stress component normal to the shell midsurface is zero. One constitutive evaluation is made for each integration point through the shell thickness. The 8node solid element uses either one point integration or the Flanagan and Belytschko constant stress formulation with exact volume integration. Zero energy modes in the shell and solid elements are controlled by either an hourglass viscosity of stiffness. The equations of motion are integrated in time by the central difference method. A Jaumann stress rate formulation is used with the exception of the orthotropic elastic and the rubber material subroutines which use GreenSt.Venant strains to compute second PiolaKirchoff stresses which transform to Gauchy stresses.
5. RESTRICTIONS ON THE COMPLEXITY OF THE PROBLEM
Storage allocation is dynamic. The only limit that exists is the storage capacity of the computer. Typical calculations have 10,000 to 200,000 elements.
6. TYPICAL RUNNING TIME
Execution speeds on the Cray XMP for various DYNA3D element types range from 4 to 48 microseconds per element cycle. These timings are approximate and do not account for the inclusion of sliding interfaces or complex material models. Typical problems require from 4 to 80 minutes on the Cray XMP.
7. UNUSUAL FEATURES OF THE PROGRAM:
8. RELATED AND AUXILIARY PROGRAMS
The soil and crushable foam, linear viscoelastic, and the rubber BlatzKo subroutines were adapted from HONDO and recoded for vectorization, the ignition and growth EOS was adapted from KOVEC. The forms of the first five equations of state are from KOVEC also. The threedimensional contactimpact algorithm is an extension of the NIKE2D (NESC9923) twodimensional algorithm. The tied and sliding only interface options are similar to the twodimensional algorithm used in DYNA2D (NESC9910). DYNA3D relies on standalone mesh generators. INGRID (NESC9649) is recommended for creation of input files, since it provides complete support for all slide surface data, boundary conditions, loads, material properties, and control parameters. The compatible release of TAURUS (NESC9908) processes DYNA3D output plotting contours, fringes, time histories, and deformed shapes. A variety of strain measures, reaction forces along constrained boundaries, and momenta can be computed.

The University of London Computer Centre (ULCC) was founded in 1968, and was the first supercomputer facility established in London for the purpose of scientific and educational research by all of the colleges of the University of London. ULCC initially provided largescale CDCbased facilities, then from 1982 to 1991 a national Cray vector supercomputing service, and, latterly, a 6 processor, 4 Gbyte Convex C3860 supercomputer with a Convex C3200 frontend.
ULCC also became a major site for national and international network connections in the UK. It ran the Network Operations and Service Centre for the JANET Internet Protocol Service (JIPS) (the largest of the JANET network centres) and various international links and relays on behalf of UKERNA.
Since the closure of its supercomputer service in the 1990s, ULCC has focused on providing IT services across the educational and public sector, as well as undertaking research work in fields such as digital preservation and elearning.
In 2009, ULCC vacated its historic premises of 40 years at 20 Guilford Street, a building that was custom built in the 1960s specifically to house some of the earliest supercomputers in the UK. It is now based within the central university at Senate House.
ULCC continues to develop innovative IT services for a wide range of organisations mainly in the UK but with increasing work from overseas.
