Previous: SKK - FEA Programs
- A comprehensive FE package with a wide range of
applications, including fluids, solids, ground water flow, the wave equation,
and the convection-diffusion equation.
- Dennis Roddeman
at the Mechanical Engineering Department of the University of Twente.
- Most systems running Unix/Linux (compile from C++ source).
- Via the TOCHNOG website
file in tar format includes the documentation.
Uses GiD for preprocessing and postprocessing and can use
OpenDX for postprocessing.
- Includes many sophisticated features, including mesh
refinement (h and p), parallelisation, contact analysis, interaction analysis,
quasi-static and dynamic analysis, ans non-local (gradient)
calculations for softening materials). Solids models include elasticity,
plasticity, damage, thermal stresses, hypoelasticity, viscoelasticity
and viscoplasticity, Large strain/deformation capabilities are included
using both Lagrangian, Eulerian and mixed formulations.
